St. Augustine’s Falcons (North Carolina) head football coach Tim Chavous has been fried. The school has announced that he’ll be replaced by two assistant coaches.

Okesa Smith and Reginald Cooper we’re named the school’s interim head coaches. Chavous believes he was fired because of the school’s Athletic Director George Williams before deleting his social media accounts.

“Within the Department of Athletics, goals and expectations are set for each team,” said George Williams, SAU Director of Athletics. “Athletes must meet the requirements for eligibility from the institution, the CIAA, and the NCAA to participate. Unfortunately, achieving eligibility is not always easy and our expectations are not always met. It is times like these that we have to re-evaluate and make changes that we feel are necessary.”

“This has happened with the football program, and we feel that a change has to take place immediately,” Williams added. “Our primary interest is always the well-being of the students.”

Smith was the team’s defensive coordinator before beginning his interim head coaching responsibilities. Cooper was previously the team’s quarterbacks coach before his new responsibility.

Chavous guided the team to an 0-3 record during the 2019 season. As the team’s head coach, he was 10-28.

The team was out scored 148-28 in those three losses. Only in one game this season has the team scored more than two touchdowns in a 46-14 loss to Mars Hill University.
