The college football season is officially over — with Clemson defeating top-ranked Alabama 35-31 in the waning seconds of the College Football Playoff National Championship game Monday night — but that doesn’t mean we’re finished talking about it quite yet.

Coach Ken Niumatalolo has been at Navy since 2007. He made a cool $2 million for 2016. Navy finished 9-3 in the regular season, then went on to lose 48-45 to Louisiana Tech in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl.
