Charlotte Fires Will Healy After 1-7 Start

CHARLOTTE – The Charlotte 49ers have parted ways with head coach Will Healy after Saturday’s 34-15 loss to FIU. The loss dropped the 49ers to 1-7 on the season, eliminating Charlotte from bowl contention for the third year in a row. The 49ers defense was ranked #131 among FBS squads, good for last in the nation. Offensive line coach Pete Rossomando will serve as the interim coach the rest of the year.

Healy’s tenure started off strong, helping the 49ers to their first bowl game in school history, but the 49ers were unable to maintain that momentum, winning only eight games over the last three seasons. Healy finished 15-24 as head coach for the 49ers.

Charlotte is moving to the American Athletic Conference next year and will be looking to hire the third coach in the school’s history.
