Army Fires Ellerson After 5 Losses to Navy

UNDATED (AP) — Army has fired coach Rich Ellerson after five seasons at West Point and no victories against Navy.

Army athletic director Boo Corrigan says Ellerson was notified that he would not be retained Sunday night, about 24 hours after the Black Knights (3-9) finished the season with a 34-7 loss to Navy.

Ellerson went 20-41 at the U.S. Military Academy and couldn’t snap the Black Knights’ losing streak against their most important rival. The Midshipmen have won 12 straight in the series, the longest streak by either side.

Ellerson came to West Point, N.Y., after eight seasons at Cal Poly and brought the triple-option offense back to Army. The Cadets went 7-6 in his second season, including their first bowl victory since 1985. But the last three years, Army went 8-28.
