Arizona offers coaching job to Navy's Ken Niumatalolo

Arizona offers coaching job to Navy's Ken Niumatalolo

Overall, he has gone 84-48 as the Midshipmen's head coach.

Ken Niumatalolo isn't going anywhere.

Niumatalolo, who is Mormon, has entertained coaching opportunities outside of Annapolis before, most seriously when the head-coaching vacancy opened at Brigham Young in 2015.

The Arizona job came open when Rich Rodriguez was sacked January 2 amid allegations of sexual misconduct brought by a former athletic department employee. ESPN's Adam Rittenberg reports that Navy's head coach has opted to stick with the Midshipmen.


The search for a head coach continues for UA football. The Wildcats were reportedly very far along with Niumatalolo, with Football Scoop reporting that they were negotiating a contract.

This news should be pleasing to at least one Arizona player. The Navy coach is known for his triple-option attack, but it is not known whether or not he would bring that offensive scheme to Arizona.

Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman first reported that Niumatalolo was no longer considering the vacant Arizona job. In his first 11 years with Navy, Niumatalolo took the school to bowl games in all but one season, failing to qualify for a bowl game in 2011 when the Midshipmen went just 5-7. He interviewed extensively at BYU two years ago, before ultimately deciding to stay at Navy.
