Georgia State fires head coach Trent Miles

Sunday November 13th, 2016

Georgia State fired head coach Trent Miles on Saturday, a source told SI’s Pete Thamel.

The Panthers fell to Louisiana Monroe 37–23 on Saturday, dropping them to 2–8 this season. They are just 9–38 in Miles’s four-year tenure and have regressed this season after going 6–7 in 2015 and reaching the Cure Bowl.

Miles was the second head coach in the short history of Georgia State’s football program. The team began playing in 2010 and quickly jumped from the FCS to the FBS in 2013, Miles’s first season. The Panthers went 0–12 in that first year and 1–11 in 2014 before finally finding success last year.

Miles was head coach at FCS Indiana State from 2008–12, compiling a 20–36 record in his tenure with the Sycamores. He took them from 0–12 in his first season to 7–4 in 2012 before leaving for Georgia State.

The Panthers will finish out their regular season with a home date against Georgia Southern next Saturday before a season finale at Idaho on Dec. 3.
