Bob Shoop moves to Defensive Coordinator for William & Mary

The UMass website has an article about UMass' defensive backs coach Bob Shoop being hired by William & Mary as Defensive Coordinator.

UMass and the Tribe play on 10/27/07.

Matt Vautour had reported back on 01/26/07 that Shoop was a hot property in I-AA as a Defensive Coordinator.

Shoop is the second UMass caoch to leave after the 2006 season. Matt also reported that Brian Smith left to join the Jets organization.

Good luck to both coaches! Except, of course, to Bob Shoop on 10/27.

UPDATE: According to W&M fans, Shoop is the seventh Tribe Defensive Coordinator in eleven years...

UMass fans will miss Shoop. He was an excellent coach for UMass.

But he obviously was capable of being a head coach again somewhere.

Nobody has won at Columbia.
