The team will be led by Nunzio Campanile for the rest of the season. He was previously the team’s tight ends coach before being named interim head coach.

“We appreciate Chris’s dedicated efforts on behalf of our football program, our department, and our University,” said Hobbs. “This change is especially difficult because of the steadfast commitment that Chris and his family have made to our student-athletes. Progress has been achieved in many areas, but, unfortunately, that progress has not been realized on the field of play.

“As such, it is in the best interest of the program to make a change.”

Their lone win of the 2019 season came in a 48-21 over the Massachusetts Minutemen on Friday, August 30th.
