DILLON — University of Montana Western football coach Rich Ferris said he is losing his coaching job after three seasons.
Ferris told The Montana Standard he received a letter from the college Monday saying his employment as football coach was no longer needed. He said he has the option to resign and possibly keep some teaching duties, or be fired.
Western athletic director Mark Durham confirmed that Ferris had been given some options.
Western posted a 1-10 record this fall and Ferris’ teams have gone 7-25 over the past three years.
Ferris played football at Western, earning NAIA All-America honors at safety. He was an assistant for seven years before taking over the head coaching job.
Western volleyball coach Katie Howells resigned Monday after five seasons.
