Georgia Southern fires coach Tyson Summers after 0-6 start

Oct 22, 2017 - 8:14 PM STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) — Georgia Southern has fired coach Tyson Summers halfway through his second season with the school after an 0-6 start. The Eagles were blown out 55-20 on Saturday by previously winless Massachusetts, dropping Summers' record to 5-13. Summers is a Georgia native who was defensive coordinator at Colorado State and Central Florida before being hired by Georgia Southern to replace Willie Fritz after the 2015 season. He got off to a bad start not only with a losing season in year one but by moving the team away from the triple-option that has brought the program decades of success. Georgia Southern won six national titles in Division I-AA (now FCS), and then won 18 games in its first two seasons playing in FBS, the highest level of Division I football.
