Mark Whipple Quotes From MAC Weekly Teleconference (Sept. 8)

Season at Massachusetts: Third

After a stint at Pittsburgh as a defensive graduate assistant and video assistant, Spencer Whipple comes to Massachusetts beginning with the 2014 season as tight ends coach for the Minutemen.

Son of head coach Mark Whipple, Spencer is no stranger to Amherst, being raised in the area during his father's first tenure directing the UMass football program (1998-2003). Additionally, he spent one season (2008) with the Minutemen as a quarterback alongside Liam Coen who is now Massachusetts' quarterbacks coach.

His playing career also included stops at Pittsburgh and Miami (FL). In 2007, he walked-on to the Pitt squad, then played in each game at Miami in 2010 and 2011 as holder and backup quarterback.

During his senior season in 2011, he received the Mariutto Family Scholar-Athlete Award and, as a holder, helped lead the Hurricanes to a 39-for-39 PAT rate and 11-for-14 field goal rate.

As a student-athlete at Pine-Richland High School (Pa.), he threw for nearly 1,500 yards during his senior season, including 11 touchdowns. The run helped compose the Rams' 11-1 record and subsequent Greater Allegheny Conference Championship. That season, he earned "Fabulous 22" North honors from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

In 2015 Whipple helped coach Senior wide receiver Taje Sharpe to a dominant season. Sharpe lead the FBS in receptions per game (9.3) and overall receptions (111). Sharpe also earned his second election to the ALL-MAC first team, while quarterback Blake Frohnapfel threw for 2919 yards.

Whipple holds a degree from Miami in Sociology.
