Navy parts ways with Ken Niumatalolo after football team loses in overtime to Army

Dec 12, 2022

Navy football’s overtime loss to Army on Saturday appeared to be the final reason for the school to part ways with head coach Ken Niumatalolo after 15 seasons.

The Midshipmen fell to the Black Knights, 20-17, in overtime to wrap up the school’s 2022 season and put the finishing touches on a third consecutive losing season. Navy appeared to be a far cry from the 2019 season in which the school finished 11-2. Niumatalolo was the school’s winningest coach with a 109-83 record.

"Our sincerest gratitude to Coach Ken for what has been a distinguished and impactful legacy at the Naval Academy," Navy athletics director Chet Gladchuk announced Sunday. "Navy football flourished for many years under his leadership. He will forever be remembered for the influence he has had on the lives of those who played for him. We all have great respect and appreciation for his 25 years of service to the Academy."

"The Naval Academy will now move forward with continued high ambitions and embrace a new era of reaffirmed expectations for Navy football and our midshipmen," he continued.
