The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks fired head coach Todd Berry on Saturday, per Adam Hunsucker of the News-Star.
Berry was in his sixth year with the Warhawks, amassing a record of 28-43 at the school. His final game, a 59-21 home loss to the Arkansas State Red Wolves, dropped ULM to 1-9.
|Todd Berry FBS Head-Coaching Career Record|
Berry began his FBS coaching career with the Army Black Knights in 2000 but coached the FCS Illinois State Redbirds from 1996 to 1999.
He coached four seasons at West Point before the team fired him in 2003. He had stints as an assistant coach with the Warhawks, Miami Hurricanes and UNLV Rebels before landing the head-coaching job at ULM.
Sean Fox of ESPN Radio 97.7 FM praised Berry's character but said the move made sense:
ESPN's Brett McMurphy confirmed defensive line coach John Mumford will serve as the team's head coach for the rest of the season.
The move couldn't come as a surprise to many, given the Warhawks' struggles. ULM has winnable games remaining against the 2-8 Hawaii Rainbow Warriors and 2-7 New Mexico State Aggies, but letting Berry go now gives the team a head start in finding a new coach for next year.
