The University at Buffalo has hired Lance Leipold as their new head football coach, multiple sources close to the situation have indicated to 7 Eyewitness Sports Anchor Shawn Stepner.

Leipold comes to the Bulls after coaching Wisconsin-Whitewater to five Division III national titles.  He compiled a 106-6 record while leading the Warhawks, his first head coaching job.

The 50-year-old will be introduced at a press conference Monday at Alumni Arena.

Leipold replaces Jeff Quinn, who was fired this year as UB's head coach, and Alex Wood who was interim head coach for the Bulls' final four games of the 2014 season.
