Dan Malone says new UMass A.D. Ryan Bamford bring "intimate knowledge of FBS football".

Dan also has quotes from Bamford's former bosses on his appointment as UMass A.D.

The UMass Blog certainly welcomes Ryan Bamford to UMass. I hope he is wildly successful in Amherst, stays six years and is then offered a multi-million dollar contract as A.D in a Power Five school.

He really needs to shake things up at UMass. I hope he receives the support he needs from the school administration and from UMass alums. We are currently punching under our weight in a number of sports. I think UMass is one of the nation's top public universities. In athletics, we should be able to perform at the level of other Group-of-Five schools.

Let's Go UMass!

UMass will hold its Pro Day March 30th.

Calls were made for UAB President Ray Watts to resign after documents indicate the school's press releases of the plan to cut UAB football were untrue.
