This is the 15th stop in Mumme’s career, with his most recent coaching gig being the offensive coordinator at Jackson State last season.
Mumme was hired Kentucky back in 1996 to replace Bill Curry as the football team’s head coach. Coming off a 9-24 mark over three seasons under Curry, the new Wildcat head coach led Kentucky to a 20-18 start in his first three years. After being accused of more than three dozen NCAA rules violations centered on making payments to recruits, Mumme resigned as the team’s head coach in 2001 with a final record of 20-26.
Following his time at Kentucky, Mumme made head coaching stops at Southeastern Louisiana, New Mexico State, and McMurry (Division III). He made a pit stop at SMU as the team’s offensive coordinator before spending the next three years at Belhaven as the program’s head coach.
Now, Mumme will take a stab at the XFL, which is slated to begin in the spring of next year.
