The Charlotte 49ers have parted ways with head coach Brad Lambert. He was the only coach in school history in the reboot of the football program. 

The 49ers football program was discontinued after the 1948 season. Lambert was hired in 2011 to help start the program up again.

He will be allowed to coach the final game of the season. The 49ers end their season on Saturday in Boca Raton, Florida, as they face the Florida Atlantic University Owls at 6 pm EST.

Charlotte will attempt to avoid a four-game losing streak against the Owls.
The 49ers were defeated 42-35 by the Florida International University Golden Panthers at Jerry Richardson Stadium.

They were also defeated 30-12 by the Marshall Thundering Herd on November 10th. They also were defeated 14-3 by the Tennessee Volunteers on November 3rd.

At this time, his last win with the program came on October 27th against the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles. The 49ers won 20-17 at home.

In his final season, the 49ers went 4-7 this season. The team also went 3-4 in the Conference USA East Division, trailing Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders, who were 6-1 in conference play and 7-4 overall.

The Thundering Herd were 5-2 in conference play. They also went 7-3 overall.

The four wins tied Lambert’s most wins in a season since making the switch to Conference USA. The team also had four wins during the 2016 season.

In those other two seasons in the conference, he had a combined 3-21 record.

As an Independent in 2013 and 2014, Lambert guided the team to a 10-12 record. He had back-to-back 5-6 records.
