Tulsa head football coach Philip Montgomery has been fired, the school announced on Sunday. Montgomery was 43-53 over eight seasons with the program, reaching four bowls (2-2) along the way.
“This was an extremely difficult decision, one that affects a number of individuals and is never easy for anyone involved,” AD Rick Dickson said in a statement. “Philip’s dedication to our student-athletes is unquestioned and we thank him for his tireless efforts in leading our young men. He has represented TU with class and character. We appreciate Philip’s commitment to The University of Tulsa, our football program and the Tulsa community.”
The Golden Hurricane were 5-7 (3-5) this year, but went to bowls in each of the two prior seasons. Montgomery was hired in 2015 after spending the previous seven seasons running the offense at Baylor.
