According to sources, San José State head football coach Ron Caragher will not return. The team was 4-8 this season.

In four seasons at the school, he had two six-win seasons. That also including a 2015 bowl win, but they’ve went 19-30 in his tenure there.

In the 2015 Cure Bowl — which took place at the Orlando Citrus Bowl — the Spartans won 27-16 over the Georgia State Panthers. Both head coaches from this game have been fired this off-season.

Caragher took over for Mike MacIntyre, who is the Colorado Buffaloes head coach. He’s turned the Buffs program into a Top 10 team this year.

He took over for MacIntyre a week after the Spartans went 10-2 in 2012.

He also replaced Jim Harbaugh — the current Michigan Wolverines head coach — when he left the San Diego Toreros to become the Stanford Cardinal head coach in 2007. He went 44-22 at the FCS school in six years.

The 49-year-old had a year left on his five-year deal. He is still owed $525,000 by the school.

With the Spartans, they haven’t finished better than second in the West Division in the Mountain West Conference.
