Navy decided to hire a familiar face to take over its football program - and Brian Newberry doesn't expect a major overhaul to the way the Midshipmen operate.
"This is not a rebuild. Our program is not broken," said Newberry, who was promoted Monday. "We've got a great nucleus of players coming back. My expectations for what we can achieve next year are sky-high."
The former defensive coordinator replaces Ken Niumatalolo, who was fired after going 4-8 this season. When athletic director Chet Gladchuk spoke with reporters last week, he spent a lot of time outlining his expectations for the program in what seemed like an attempt to explain Niumatalolo's ouster.
