Football: Mumme resigns to be offensive coordinator at Division I University of Nevada

LaGrange College Athletics Director Jennifer Claybrook has announced the resignation of head football coach Matt Mumme who has accepted the position of offensive coordinator at NCAA Division I member University of Nevada.

"We at LaGrange College wish Matt the best in his new position and want to thank him for his efforts as our head football coach over the past three years," Claybrook said. "The foundation has been laid for a successful program with the talented players we have returning and strong prospects for the incoming class of 2017."

Mumme came to LaGrange from Davidson College in 2013 as the offensive coordinator. He assumed the head coaching duties for the season's final three games and recently completed his third full season.

"Fayedra and I have been truly blessed to be a part of such a wonderful school here at LaGrange College. I was very honored to be the head football coach here and want to give special thanks to Dr. McAlexander for giving me this opportunity," Mumme said. "I would be amiss if I didn't also thank Jennifer Claybrook, all of my staff and of course all the players who have given their commitment to make this program grow."

A search for the Panthers' new head coach will start immediately. Claybrook expects the position will attract a large number of applicants.

"With a strong recruiting base available and the excellent football facilities we have here at LaGrange College, we can expect to bring in a talented head coach to further the advancement of the Panther football program," she said.
