EKU football fires offensive coordinator Angelo Mirando

RICHMOND, Ky. -- Eastern Kentucky head football coach Mark Elder announced on Sunday that he has fired offensive coordinator Angelo Mirando.

Through seven games this season, the Colonels rank eighth among nine teams in the OVC in scoring. EKU is also ninth in total offense and ninth in passing offense.

“I want to thank Angelo for all of his effort, hard work, dedication and passion for EKU football,” Elder said. “These decisions are never easy because they impact relationships and the lives of real people. However, in evaluating our program, this is a decision that is in the best interest of our student-athletes.”

Assistant head coach and tight ends coach Tommy Zagorski will serve as the offensive coordinator for the remainder of the season.

EKU hosts Eastern Illinois on Saturday at 1pm.
