Ken Niumatalolo to remain at Navy

Ken Niumatalolo to remain at Navy

Ken Niumatalolo received a ringing endorsement from colleague Matt Rhule as he vies for the Arizona Wildcats head coaching job.

The Washington Post confirmed through two people with knowledge of the situation that Niumatalolo, 52, was at the American Football Coaches Association convention in Charlotte on Monday but missed previously scheduled meetings on Tuesday.

Neither Niumatalolo nor Navy Athletic Director Chet Gladchuk responded to text or voice messages from The Post seeking comment.

Tres Tinkle scores 18, but Oregon State falls at Arizona
The win was there for the taking, but a late-game collapse denied Oregon State its first road win over a Top 25 team since 1985. Trier would hit a big-time three-point jumper making it 81-77 in favor of the Wildcats, ultimately sealing the win for Arizona.

Since then, the Midshipmen have won four of their last five bowl games, most recently defeating Virginia in a 49-7 rout in the Military Bowl on December 28. Before taking over in 2007, Niumatalolo served as the assistant head coach and offensive line coach from 2002 up until that point. The Wildcats fired Rich Rodriguez earlier this month with the coach in the middle of a potential lawsuit for workplace misconduct.

Niumatalolo, a disciple of former UA coach Dick Tomey, is believed to be interviewing and is considered one of the finalists.

This news should be pleasing to at least one Arizona player. He went through a similar interview process with BYU a couple of seasons ago, but ultimately made a decision to stay with the Midshipmen. "He will remain with the Mids for an 11th season", Rittenberg reported.
