TEAMS: UAB Blazers
The UAB Blazers are searching for a football coach who can win games and win over the community. Athletic director Brian Mackin said Monday building enough support for an on-campus stadium will be critical to the long-term success of the program. Mackin will lead a national search to replace Neil Callaway, who was fired Sunday after posting losing records in each of his five seasons. The lack of fan and financial support led trustees for the University of Alabama system to shoot down a proposal for a stadium allowing UAB to move its home games from aging Legion Field. Mackin says the Blazers ''need someone to come in here and sell this program and recruit and win.'' They were last in Conference USA in attendance this season and finished 3-9.
