EKU Football announced on Monday that the university has relieved Dean Hood of his duties as head football coach.

Hood leaves the helm of the Colonels’ football program with a record of 55-38 in eight seasons. EKU says that a national search for the program’s next head coach will begin immediately.

“I want to thank Dean for his service to Eastern Kentucky University,” said Director of Athletics Steve Lochmueller. “These decisions are never taken lightly. After a careful review of our football program, I feel a change in leadership is needed.”

Following the announcement, EKU junior quarterback Bennie Coney joined others in tweeting their reactions.
