Matty Vautour says new defensive coordinator Ed Pinkham wants UMass to play aggressive defense.

Quote from the article:

"The Minutemen will technically be a 4-3 defense under Pinkham, but he said it’s more like a 4-2-5 with a linebacker/safety hybrid instead of a third linebacker. The players are learning the system’s nomenclature and making adjustments after spending the past three years in a 3-4 defense."
