ELON, N.C. -- Elon has fired football coach Jason Swepson after he went 10-24 in three seasons.

Athletic director Dave Blank announced the decision Monday.

He says "a change in leadership is necessary" to move the program forward.

Swepson came to Elon from Tom O'Brien's staff at North Carolina State in 2011 when Pete Lembo left for Ball State.

The Phoenix were 5-19 in the Southern Conference under Swepson, a former running back at Boston College from 1998-92.

Elon was 2-10 this season, 1-7 in the SoCon and finished with six consecutive losses, including a 33-32 loss to Samford on Saturday. The Phoenix began the year with a 70-0 loss at Georgia Tech.

Blank says the school is conducting a national search for Swepson's replacement.
