Another college football coach has been fired.

Charlotte veteran head coach Brad Lambert, who had led the program since 2011, is being let go, according to a report by FootballScoop.

From the report:

Source tells FootballScoop the University has made the decision to part ways with head coach Brad Lambert.

In six seasons as head coach (who started the program), Lambert won 21 games. In FCS competition their first two seasons the 49ers won 5 games both seasons; but as they transitioned to FBS things got more challenging. The last four seasons the team has won 2, 4, 1 and 4 games respectively. Lambert accepted the opportunity to begin the program in early 2011. He previously had served on Wake Forest’s staff for a decade, the final three seasons as defensive coordinator.

Charlotte (4-7) closes their season at FAU Saturday. One source we spoke with believes he will coach their final game; but that decision was not final at that time.

Lambert had previously served as an assistant coach at Wake Forest, Georgia and Marshall.

Stay tuned for an official announcement.
