Texas Southern University head football coach Michael Haywood has resigned from his position. This season, the team went 2-9.

The past two seasons, the team has gone 4-18. His best season was a 4-7 record in 2016.


The team was a combined 8-25 in three seasons. They also went 7-16 in Southwestern Athletic Conference.

“I would like to thank Texas Southern University President Dr. Austin Lane, Dr. Charles McClelland and Mr. Kevin Granger for the opportunity to lead the football program here at TSU the past three seasons,” said Haywood.

This season, the team began with a win in its opener against the UT-Permian Basin Falcons, 26-16, on September 1st. The game was played at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas, the home of Major League Soccer’s Houston Dynamo.

Following the win, the team lost six straight games. Their next win did not come until October 27th against the Mississippi Valley State Devils on Homecoming. They won 42-14.

The Tigers lost their final three games of the season. They were outscored 105-45 in those three games to the Alabama State Hornets, Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions, and the Prairie View A&M Panthers.

“We would like to thank Coach Haywood and his staff for the contributions they’ve made to the football program here at Texas Southern. We wish him and his family well in their future endeavors,” said TSU Interim VP of Athletics Kevin Granger.
