Defensive assistant will lead Whitewater football dynasty

WHITEWATER, Wis. (AP) The search for a head football coach to lead the six-time national champion University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is over.

Defensive assistant coach Kevin Bullis will inherit the football dynasty, along with great expectations. The Whitewater has the nation's longest winning streak (32 games) to go with its six Division III titles in the last eight seasons.

Bullis has served as interim head coach for the Warhawks. He becomes the 21st head coach in the 121-year history of UW-Whitewater football.

He replaces Lance Leipold, who left to take the same position at Buffalo after beating Mount Union in the championship game last month. He finished a remarkable eight-year run with a 109-6 record.
