Dameron out as Eastern Illinois coach
(STATS) - Eastern Illinois announced the firing of coach Kim Dameron after five seasons on Sunday.
The Panthers finished 3-8 this season, including 3-5 in the Ohio Valley Conference. Dameron was 27-30 overall.
While EIU has made the second-most playoff appearances (16) in OVC history, it had only one under Dameron in 2015. The Panthers lost to UNI 53-17 in the first round.
Athletic director Tom Michael said a national search for Dameron's replacement will begin immediately.
