COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) Texas A&M defensive coordinator Mark Snyder has been fired the day after the Aggies allowed 491 yards in a regular-season ending loss to LSU.

Texas A&M gave up 384 yards rushing in a 23-17 loss on Friday night at Kyle Field.

Snyder has been at Texas A&M since coach Kevin Sumlin was hired at the school in 2012.

Sumlin says in a statement that Snyder: ''understands the production needed to be better on the defensive side of the football.''

The Aggies rank 103rd in total defense by allowing 449 yards a game. They allowed 223.5 yards rushing a game, which ranks 111th in the nation.

Linebackers coach Mark Hagan will be A&M's interim defensive coordinator for the team's bowl game.
