NEW ORLEANS -- Tulane athletic director says head football coach Bob Toledo has resigned.

Rick Dickson made the announcement Tuesday. Former offensive line coach Mark Hutson has been named interim coach for Tulane's remaining six games. Hutson was the interim head coach at Eastern Illinois in 2006.

The 65-year-old Toledo, a former head coach at UCLA, took over at Tulane in 2007, the Green Wave's second season back in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

Although he was 13-35 in his first four years, Toledo received a two-year extension after last season in the hope his recruiting efforts would pay off with a winning season. Tulane, however, is off to a 2-5 start that has included lopsided losses to Tulsa, Duke, Army and UTEP.

Tulane plays its homecoming game Oct. 22 against Memphis.
