Buffalo tabs Michigan's Linguist to take over football team

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Maurice Linguist was hired as the University at Buffalo's football coach Friday night, just months after he became Michigan's co-defensive coordinator.

Linguist joined Jim Harbaugh's Michigan staff in January as part of an offseason overhaul following a losing season, and was to share the defensive duties with Mike McDonald.

Instead, the 37-year-old Linguist landed his first career head-coaching job in a return to Buffalo, where he spent 2012 and '13 as an assistant under Jeff Quinn.
