AMHERST, Mass. (AP) UMass has found a new leader for its basketball program, hiring Frank Martin as its coach Friday.
Martin, 56, takes over the Minutemen program from Matt McCall, who was fired this month after going 58-81 over five seasons in Amherst.
"It is evident that there is tremendous alignment in place to win and do it the right way," Martin said in a statement. "Let's all get on this ride together, let's dream big and let's be relentless at making our dreams a reality."
