Charlie Strong is out as head coach after three seasons at South Florida, according to multiple reports Sunday.

USF finished this season on a four-game losing streak to end with a 4-8 record, including a 2-6 mark in the American Athletic Conference.

Strong went 10-2 in his first season with the Bulls, but dropped to 7-6 in 2018. He ends with a 21-16 mark at the school, which hired him in December 2016 a few weeks after he was fired following a three-year stint at Texas.

Boston College fired football coach Steve Addazio on Sunday after seven seasons, a person with knowledge of the decision told USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the school had not yet announced the move.

Addazio got Boston College to bowl eligibility in six of those seven years, including Saturday when the Eagles beat Pitt 26-19 to reach 6-6. But the program hadn’t been able to get over the hump of six- and seven-win seasons and advance up the ACC standings.

Addazio finishes his tenure 44-44 overall and 22-34 in the ACC.

Ole Miss has dismissed head football coach Matt Luke, who posted a 15-21 record in three seasons at the helm.

“After evaluating the overall trajectory of our football program, we did not see enough momentum on the field and determined a change is necessary in order for our student-athletes to compete at the highest level,” athletic director Keith Carter said in a statement Sunday night. “While improvements were evident in certain aspects of the program, we are judged ultimately by our record, and, unfortunately, we did not meet the standard of success that we expect from our program.

The University of Texas at San Antonio fired coach Frank Wilson on Sunday after he compiled a 19-29 record in four seasons.

“I want to thank Coach Wilson for his efforts on behalf of the football program and the university, and for his commitment to his student-athletes,” athletic director Lisa Campos said in a statement. “As only the second head coach in our history, Coach Wilson continued to build on the foundation of a young football program and we are grateful for his contributions to UTSA.”

The Roadrunners finished 4-8 this season, 3-5 in Conference USA.
