“Mark Macon led the program during an extremely difficult period,” said Elliott. “I appreciate and thank him for his efforts but after careful consideration, I have made the difficult decision to make a change in leadership. The decision comes after a thorough assessment of our current program and my expectations for the future.”
Elliott said a national search for a new head coach would begin shortly.
Macon, who just concluded his fourth season at Binghamton University, took over the head coaching position in 2009. He compiled a 23-70 record in his three seasons as head coach.
