Weber State fires head coach Sears after just two seasons

SALT LAKE CITY -- Weber State has fired its football coach after just two seasons.

Jody Sears went 4-19 in his two seasons as head coach of the Wildcats, who play in the Big Sky Conference. The northern Utah school announced Sears' dismissal on Tuesday afternoon.

Athletic director Jerry Bovee says Sears came into a difficult situation, but said that he didn't see the progress he wanted.

Sears came to Weber State in January 2012 as a defensive coordinator, but was promoted to interim head coach after the previous head coach resigned before coaching any games. He was given a three-year contract in November 2012.

Before coming to Weber State, Sears was co-defensive coordinator at Washington State, where he played collegiately.

Weber State finished this season 2-12, and just 1-7 in conference play.
