In a statement this morning, UMass Athletic Director Ryan Bamford announced:
We have been in constant communication with university leadership and our football staff since March, with the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches and staff remaining our top priority. The continuing challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic posed too great of a risk, and we reached the conclusion that attempting to play a season would not have placed the members of our program in the safest situation possible.
The school continues to hope it can reschedule canceled fall sports events to the spring.
