Army fired head coach Rich Ellerson on Sunday afternoon following another disappointing loss to the Naval Academy on Saturday afternoon. Ellerson and the Black Knights fell 34-7 and finished the season 3-9, making it 12 straight years without a win over Navy in the Annual Army-Navy game.
As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head into the final two games of the regular season, the coaching rumors will certainly heat up in the coming weeks. Fox Sports NFL insider reported Monday afternoon that Bucs offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan could be a person of interest to fill the vacancy at Army.
