2. ON THE MOVE: Wake's Muuss lands Denver job


Wake Forest assistant Bobby Muuss has been hired to fill the men's head coaching vacancy at Denver following Chad Ashton's decision to leave Denver to become an assistant at D.C. United.

Muuss worked closely the last three years with Demon Deacon goalie Brian Edwards, who set school records with 13 shutouts last season and 31 in his career, and he had a big role in recruiting. Wake's classes have ranked among the nation's best in each of the last six years.
