Former UK Head Football Coach, Hal Mumme, abruptly left his position as offensive coordinator at Jackson State University in Mississippi.

The Tigers Head Coach, Tony Hughes announced today that Mumme has resigned to pursue other professional opportunities. Derrick McCall will assume offensive coordinator responsibilities on an interim basis.

Mumme led UK from 1997-2000 where he coached a Tim Couch-led team to 7 wins and the Outback Bowl in 1998 where the Wildcats lost to Penn State. The next season they had 6 wins and a loss in the Music City Bowl.
