HBCU schools in FCS making coaching changes

(STATS) - The head coaching changes at HBCU programs in the FCS are adding up like the many losses on the field.

There have been six changes in the last two days and seven this season in the Mid-Eastern Athletic and Southwestern Athletic conferences, which are comprised entirely of historically black colleges and universities.

In the SWAC on Monday, the two-longest tenured coaches were let go. Mississippi Valley State fired Rick Comegy after four seasons and a 6-38 record, including 2-9 this year. He previously coached in the conference for eight seasons at Jackson State.
