Mocs lose Fobbs to Liberty

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team is looking for a new running backs coach.

Jamaal Fobbs, who was with the Mocs for two seasons, is leaving UTC for a job at Liberty University of the Big South Conference. Liberty recently hired former Kansas coach Turner Gill to take over the program, replacing Danny Rocco who left for Richmond.

"Obviously we didn't want to lose him," Mocs coach Russ Huesman said. "I think he's an excellent coach and excellent person."

Huesman said he's focused on recruiting right now and will likely turn his attention to finding a new coach in early February.
