You can add another name to the list of college football head coaches that've been fired this season.

Central Michigan University announced this evening a change in its football program.

John Bonamego, Central Michigan's head football coach, will not return in 2019.

From the school:

"Making a leadership change is a difficult decision, especially when you know that coach has given his all to CMU," Alford said. "After conducting a 360-degree evaluation of the program, it was clear that a change is needed if we are going to compete for and win championships. We greatly appreciate all that John has done for his alma mater and wish him the best moving forward."

Bonamego just finished his fourth season at CMU with an overall record of 22-29 and a MAC record of 15-17. The Chippewas were 1-11 overall, 0-8 in conference action this past season.

Cory Hall will provide leadership for the program until a new head coach is named.

Central Michigan went 1-11 this season.
