UW-Whitewater coach Lance Leipold will reportedly become the next football coach at Buffalo, according to Sports Illustrated. Leipold has a 106-6 record at Whitewater, including including a 29-1 record in the D-III playoffs and five national championships. Now he's apparently moving on to the MAC, and a FBS program that finished 5-6 this year and was bowl-eligible in 2013 for the first time since 2008.

According to the SI report, Leipold, a pro-style offensive coach, is expected to bring at least one staff member with "major FBS recruiting experience" to Buffalo.
