Posted September 19, 2018 12:24:54By the time the 2019 season rolls around, the NCAA football world will know whether the men’s basketball program will get a new coach or not.
It’s not yet known whether the NCAA basketball program would like to have a new head coach.
However, the question that remains is which FCS program is the most likely one to get a change in the next coach.
The question has come up more than once in the past several months, as the conference has been forced to make changes at various levels of the program.
The conference, though, has done little to put the matter to rest.
It has not even announced who will be replacing Jeff Brohm.
The NCAA announced the hiring of Jeff Brohman to be the next head basketball coach of the Missouri Valley Conference (MWC) on Friday.
He will replace Bob Diaco who has been the head coach at the University of Montana since the 2015-16 season.
Diaco, however, has a contract through 2024-25.
While it is expected that Missouri Valley will be looking for another head coach, the team has yet to announce any candidates.
There have been several other changes made at the conference this past offseason, including the hiring the former Montana head coach of former coach D’Andre Swift to take over for the program that won just three games last season.
In an interview with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Thursday, Swift said the team is focused on winning.
The only other change is that the MWC will have three football teams instead of two, with the Mountain West Conference’s MWFC and the Atlantic Coast Conference’s MAC, with five teams.
It is not clear if the conference plans to make a change to the men, women or junior varsity sports, with some of those teams having already made major changes to their rosters.
With the new head coaches, the MVC will be led by current Montana head man Scott Brooks and former Montana offensive coordinator Chris Holtmann, who is expected to be hired to replace Diaco.
The MVC finished 10-3 last season, winning the Mountain East title and reaching the conference championship game.
The MAC is led by the program’s offensive coordinator Mike McBryde, who will also be taking over for Diaco, while the Mountain Division is led, according to the conference’s website, by former Montana defensive coordinator Brian Holcomb.
The Mountain West is led at the position by former Wyoming and Wyoming State head coach Bob Sutton.
He is the only other FCS coach to be named as a head coach in the MWS Conference.
While the MWC is led and the MAC and Mountain Division are led by coaches who are currently employed by their former schools, the rest of the league will have to wait for the hiring process to start.
In addition to Brohm, the conference will also have to fill the vacancy at offensive coordinator at the school of former offensive coordinator Rob Bolden, who was fired by the Wyoming State program.
While some of the teams in the conference already have some sort of relationship with the current coaching staff, it is unclear how many new coaches will be hired in the upcoming months.
In the past, the new coaches have gone on to become successful head coaches.
In 2017, North Texas coach Jason Candle, the first FCS head coach since the early 2000s, went 8-5 and went to the Big 12 Championship game.
He was the second FCS football coach to win the conference title.
Bolden is the second former head coach to leave the MCS for a coaching job, joining the San Jose State program when his son, Chris Bolden Jr., was hired as the new defensive coordinator.
He went 5-7 in two seasons and was fired after the 2017 season.
The MWC finished 8-3 in 2016 and went on to reach the College Football Playoff Championship game, where it lost to Texas A&M.
The next year, the program finished 7-5 with three wins coming against teams from the Mountain Southwest Conference, the Mountain Divisions division and the Conference USA.
In 2017, the men completed their first bowl season since 2005.
The program finished 6-6 and made it to the College World Series in 2018.
The 2018 MWC season was the first in which the MCC won a bowl game since 2004.
The league finished 10th in total offense in the nation in 2017 and went 4-8.
The 2018 MCC finished 10 out of the last 12 FCS bowls, with six wins coming on the road.
The 2019 MWC schedule will include four games against conference opponents and three games against Power 5 schools.
