Mid-American Conference and Massachusetts to part ways after 2015

The Mid-American Conference and Massachusetts football will part ways after the 2015 season.

The MAC has invoked a clause in its contract with UMass, triggered when Temple left the league in 2012, giving the school a choice between full membership and exiting the conference in two years.

UMass chose to end the relationship with the MAC and continue to be a member of the Atlantic 10 in most sports.

UMass made the move up from FCS to FBS in 2012 and joined the MAC. UMass has gone 2-22 in its two seasons as an FBS program, 2-14 in the MAC.

UMass athletic director John McCutcheon says the school remains "committed to FBS football."
