Report: Brown out of the running

WWLP, the ABC affiliate in Springfield, Mass. is reporting that Don Brown has opted to remain at UMass. There are no comments from Brown, just sources cited from inside the UMass athletic department.

When we get more info, we will report it. There will be a story in Friday's Register of a new candidate who is emerging with ties to Stanford University.

Here is the report from WWLP.

AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) - The UMass athletic department has confirmed to WWLP that Don Brown has taken his name out out of the running for the Yale football head coaching job. Brown interviewed for the Yale job in the past week.

Brown spent six seasons as the Yale defensive coordinator from 1987-1992. He interviewed for the same position 12 years ago, but was beat out by former Amherst College coach Jack Siedlecki, who is stepping down.

Brown still has 3 years left on his deal with UMass and led the Minutemen to the
national title game in 2006.
