BUFFALO, N.Y. — The University at Buffalo announced Friday night that Maurice Linguist will take over as the Bulls' new head football coach.
The news comes a week after Lance Leipold headed to the University of Kansas after six seasons leading the Mid-American Conference team.
Linguist, 37, who played safety at Baylor, has a history with the Bulls as a defensive backs coach for Buffalo in 2012 and 2013. He had an NFL stint, coaching the Dallas Cowboys defensive backs in 2020, after coaching at Texas A&M, Minnesota, Mississippi State and Iowa State.
Linguist was recently hired as the co-defensive coordinator and cornerbacks coach at Michigan before taking the job at Buffalo.
