CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) —There’s been a surprise retirement in major college football. Mark Richt stepped down as Miami coach on Sunday, an announcement that caught the school off-guard and comes just days after the end of an underachieving season. Richt said he was not forced out, and that the decision to retire was his. Miami athletic director Blake James told The Associated Press that he was stunned when he got the news Sunday morning. Miami struggled to a 7-6 record this season.
HOUSTON (AP) —Major Applewhite is out as head football coach or the Houston Cougars after two seasons. The school announced the move a little more than a week after the Cougars were trounced in a 70-14 loss to Army in the Armed Forces Bowl . Houston (8-5) lost four of its last five games after starting 7-1 and earning a ranking in the AP Top 25 for one week in late October.
