FCS coaching changes hit double figures

Publish date:

(STATS) - Danny Rocco's move from Richmond to Delaware on Tuesday raised the number of head coaching changes at FCS schools to 10 since the start of the 2016 season.

Rocco completes a change that began during the season when Delaware fired Dave Brock. Assistant coach Dennis Dottin-Carter took over on an interim basis and the CAA Football program set its sights across the conference to Rocco at Richmond, where he was 43-22 in five seasons.

Since the end of the regular season, Presbyterian replaced Harold Nichols with Tommy Spangler, who returned for a second stint as head coach, and UC Davis replaced Ron Gould with alumnus Dan Hawkins.

Other schools seeking to replace head coaches are Abilene Christian (Ken Collums), Bryant (Marty Fine), Furman (Bruce Fowler), Howard (Gary Harrell), Lafayette (Frank Tavani) and Lamar (Ray Woodard).

In a related move, Morgan State took the interim tag off Fred Farrier, naming him to the permanent position.
