Former UM associate head coach Mick Delaney will serve as the interim head football coach, and Jean Gee has been selected as the school’s interim athletics director.
President Royce Engstrom made the announcement Friday afternoon, one day after he fired Robin Pflugrad and Athletic Director Jim O'Dea.
Delaney recently concluded his fourth season as an assistant coach at Montana working with the running backs, and was the associate head coach. A veteran mentor, Delaney has been in the coaching ranks 44 years, with 29 of them at the collegiate level.
Gee has been involved with Grizzly Athletics for more than 15 years. She has served as the associate athletics director and senior woman administrator for Grizzly athletics for eight years.
Prior to that, Gee was assistant athletics director for compliance and academic services at UM for almost six years.
A native of Lewistown, Gee received a bachelor’s in psychology from UM in 1995 and a master’s degree in public administration in 2006.
