UMass hires Chattanooga's McCall after last pick backed out

AMHERST, Mass. (AP) UMass has hired Matt McCall as its next basketball coach.

The 35-year-old McCall spent the previous two seasons in Chattanooga, where he led the school to the NCAA Tournament in 2016.

The hiring is the second in two weeks for the Minutemen, after Winthrop coach Pat Kelsey backed out of an agreement to coach the program just minutes before he was set to be introduced.
