U of M to Name New Football Coach Thursday

Posted By on Wed, Dec 7, 2011 at 9:34 PM

The next Memphis Tiger football coach is expected to be announced at a press conference Thursday (noon, at the Hardaway Athletic Hall of Fame). Local sources are reporting Justin Fuente will be named the successor to Larry Porter, dismissed last month after two years in charge of the program. The 35-year-old Fuente has been the offensive coordinator at TCU, a program that climbed into the nation's top 10 in recent years despite not belonging to a BCS conference.
