Matt McCall serves as a game and studio analyst for NBC Sports college basketball coverage. He also is a member of the Field of 68 Media Network. In addition, he is a game analyst for Florida Atlantic University and Florida International University basketball. Matt previously served seven seasons as the head men’s basketball coach at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and the University of Massachusetts, holding a .522 winning percentage with an overall record of 108-99.
McCall was named the 22nd head coach for UMass men’s basketball on March 29, 2017. His first year at the helm included signature wins over Georgia, Providence, and Dayton. During a COVID-19 shortened season in 2021-2022, the Minutemen still managed to secure the No. 5 seed in the Atlantic 10 Championship, its highest seed since 2008. UMass also advanced to the A-10 Quarterfinals for the first time since 2016 after a 34-point victory in the A-10 Second Round over Saint Joseph’s, the largest margin of victory in Atlantic 10 Championship Tournament history.
Prior to his time at UMass, McCall spent two seasons as the head coach at Chattanooga. In his first season, the program set a school record with 29 wins, captured the SoCon Regular Season and Tournament Championships and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. The 29 wins were the most in the nation by a first-year head coach in 2015-2016. The total is tied for seventh-best since 1962. During his time at Chattanooga, McCall compiled an overall record of 48-18 with marks of 25-11 in league action and 24-4 at home.
McCall spent 11 seasons, between two stints, with Billy Donovan at the University of Florida. After five seasons as a manager and graduate assistant, he was named Director of Basketball Operations (2006-2008) before returning to Gainesville as assistant coach prior to the 2011-2012 season. In total, McCall was part of four SEC titles, four SEC Tournament titles, two NCAA Elite Eights, a Final Four and two NCAA titles. In four seasons with the Gators’ coaching staff, he helped land a top-five recruiting class in 2013, which included two McDonald’s All-Americans in Chris Walker and Kasey Hill.
In 2004, McCall earned his undergraduate degree in exercise and sports science from Florida, where he went on to earn a master’s degree in the same concentration in 2006. He and his wife are the parents of two daughters and a son.Less
