Former University of Kentucky football coach Hal Mumme resigned Friday after four seasons as head coach at McMurry University, the Reporter-News of Abilene, Texas, reported.
Mumme, the architect of Kentucky's "Air Raid" offense, coached the Wildcats from 1997 to 2000, leading UK to back-to-back bowl appearances in 1999 (Outback Bowl) and 2000 (Music City Bowl). Mumme resigned in February 2001 amid an NCAA investigation into the UK football program.
Mumme took over a lifeless program at NCAA Division III McMurry University in 2009 and quickly turned it into a winner. His teams went 4-6 in 2009, 6-4 in 2010, 9-3 in 2011 and 8-3 in 2012. Mumme also helped lead the school's transition from NCAA Division III to Division II, in which it began play this past season.
Mumme told the Reporter-News that he is leaving to pursue other career opportunities.
Its time to move, he said. Ive done everything I can do at McMurry.
Mummes 22-year collegiate coaching record is 135-118-1.
