AP source: UMass parting ways with Whipple after 6 seasons

A person familiar with the decision says Massachusetts is working on parting ways with coach Mark Whipple, who has led the Minutemen to just 16 victories in six seasons during his second stint at the school.

The person spoke Tuesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details of a deal were still being worked out. Whipple, 61, has two years remaining on a contract that pays $500,000 annually in base salary.

UMass finished this season 4-8, the same mark as last year. There was optimism the struggling independent program could take a modest step forward.
