NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Following a season-ending 27-13 loss at Rice, Old Dominion announced four assistant coaches will not return for the 2019 season. 

Rich nagy, who’d been with the program the last four years, was in his second as defensive coordinator. Nagy along with safeties coach Kermit Buggs, cornerbacks coach Sam Perryman and offensive line coach Chris Malone have all parted ways with the Monarchs football program. 

“I want to thank Coaches Nagy, Buggs, Perryman and Malone for their commitment to our program,” Head Coach Bobby Wilder said in a statement.

β€œAll four of these men worked hard at their jobs and cared about and for their players. On behalf of everyone associated with Old Dominion University football we wish them well. These are difficult decisions, but decisions that have to be made to improve our program.”

ODU struggled on defense this season, giving up an average of 215 rushing yards and 35 points per game.
