UMass football coach under fire

A petition started by several former University of Massachusetts football players accuses Minutemen coach Charley Molnar and his staff of mistreating the players and made a plea for an improvement in the quality of the program, which moved up to the Football Bowl Subdivision last year.

Pointing to the large number of players that left the program after last season and also citing conversations with current players, the petition said, “It’s time we had a collective voice on this issue to help institute change and bring awareness to how the program is being run.”
