CMU head football coach fired after 1-11 season

MOUNT PLEASANT (WJRT) - (11/23/2018) - Central Michigan University announced today that head football coach John Bonamego will not return after four seasons with program.

The Chippewas went 1-11 this season, the team's worst record in school history. This decision comes just hours after CMU's loss Friday to Toledo, 51-13.

"Making a leadership change is a difficult decision, especially when you know that coach has given his all to CMU," Associate Vice President/Director of Athletic, Michael Alford, said. "After conducting a 360-degree evaluation of the program, it was clear that a change is needed if we are going to compete for and win championships. We greatly appreciate all that John has done for his alma mater and wish him the best moving forward."

Cory Hall will provide leadership for the program until a new head coach is named.

A national search for a head coach will begin immediately.
