The Black Knights will have a new coach in 2014.

Army Fires Rich Ellerson

After a 34-7 loss to Navy on Saturday, Rich Ellerson’s tenure at Army is over. Ellerson was fired on Sunday, ending his five-year tenure at West Point with a 20-41 mark.

Army went 12-13 in Ellerson’s first two years, including a 7-6 mark in 2010.

However, the Black Knights did not win more than three games in each of the last three years.

Prior to coming to Army, Ellerson went 56-34 at Cal Poly.

Army is not an easy job, and the next coach will have quite a challenge to get this program into a bowl game every season. Another challenge for the next coach: Beat Navy. The Black Knights have lost 12 in a row to the Midshipmen.
