The University at Buffalo has picked the winningest Division III coach in the country to be its new head football coach.
UB will introduce Wisconsin-Whitewater’s Lance Leipold as its head coach at a news conference Monday, sources told The News late Sunday. Sports Illustrated was the first to post a story on the hire.
Leipold, 50, has coached Wisconsin-Whitewater to the NCAA Division III championship five of the last seven years. His team is unbeaten and in the quarterfinals this year.
