Welcome to Navy Sports Central - The Official Podcast of the Navy Sports Nation!

Today, we'll be discussing the shocking announcement that Coach Ken Niumatalolo will not be returning for a 16th season to lead the Navy Football program. I will share my thoughts on how this came to pass in addition to discussing why this situation was handled so poorly. 

In addition to that, we will have our Question of the Day and Mid Watch segments. So stick around for what promises to be an interesting show.
