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.
