Since then, the Midshipmen have won four of their last five bowl games, most recently defeating Virginia in a 49-7 rout in the Military Bowl on December 28.

Niumatalolo, a disciple of former UA coach Dick Tomey, is believed to be interviewing and is considered one of the finalists. Navy announced on Sunday that coach Ken Niumatalolo is returning for his 11th full season. Two years ago, he had an offer on the table from BYU, but ultimately opted to stay at Navy. The Navy coach is known for his triple-option attack, but it is not known whether or not he would bring that offensive scheme to Arizona. The California native was the first Wildcats player to have three games of at least 200 rushing yards in a season.
