Montana Football 2012: Mick Delaney Named Head Coach For 2012 Season

With the Montana Grizzlies football team still in flux following the dismissal of head coach Robin Pflugrad and athletic director Jim O'Day a week ago, the university has opted to name interim head coach Mick Delaney as the head coach for the entirety of the 2012 season, reports the Missoulian:

"I’ll be the coach through the season," Delaney said. "I would not have taken the position if there was going to be a change in the summer."

Delaney had coached the Grizzlies for the last four years as the running backs coach before retiring earlier in the year.

The reason for Pflugrad and O'Day's removal has not been publicly stated yet (or ever will be), but it's been spoken about in generalities such as "It was time for a change in direction."

Montana is currently taking part in spring practice.
