ULM fires coach Todd Berry to create 11th coaching vacancy of season

The University of Louisiana at Monroe has become the latest FBS program to go searching for a new coach after the Warhawks fired Todd Berry on Saturday.

Per reporter Adam Hunsucker, athletic director Brian Wickstrom told the Monroe News-Star that Berry has been dismissed, effective immediately, following the Warhawks' 59-21 home loss to Arkansas State. Defensive line coach John Mumford will serve as the team's interim coach.

“I want to thank Todd for his services,” Wickstrom said, according to the Baton Rouge Advocate. “He and his staff raised the level of the program, brought national attention to the university in 2012 and throughout his time directing the program.”

Berry departs with a 28-43 record in his six seasons with the Warhawks, including an 8-5 mark in 2012 that took the program to the nearby Independence Bowl -- the only bowl berth in the program's FBS history. But after starting 3-1 in 2014, Berry had won just two of his past 16 games, and had yet to beat an FBS opponent in 2015.

With Berry's firing, 11 FBS programs currently have coaching vacancies
