Statement from Director of Athletics Kevin Saal
Murray State University Head Football Coach Mitch Stewart has been reassigned to a position within the athletics department and will no longer serve as head football coach.
I want to thank Mitch and Rikki Stewart for their contributions to Murray State Football and investment in the lives of our student-athletes over the last 10 years. Their sacrifice and effort have built a foundation from which we must grow and improve upon as a program.
We will conduct an efficient national search for our next head coach.
We will not impose an artificial timeline for the search process.
Murray State will have no further comment until the search has concluded.
