As the college football season winds down, changes with the coaching staffs take place. Kansas introduced new head coach Les Miles earlier this week, while several other head coaches were relieved of their duties.

Add another to the list. UMass is reportedly moving on from head coach Mark Whipple after a 4-8 season this year.

The longtime NFL assistant coach was in his second stint with the Minutemen. During his five seasons with the team since 2014, Whipple's team failed to win more than four games in any one season.

Now, the team has reportedly decided to move on.

The university suspended Whipple for a controversial comment he made about the officiating in an earlier game this season. When talking about the team's loss to Ohio earlier in the season, Whipple said about the officiating, "they raped us."

Whipple was suspended for just one game.

The Minutemen will now search for a new head coach.
