Southern University's head football coach Pete Richardson won't be around for next season.

He was fired Monday after 17 years at the school. His record at the school was 134-62. Richardson had four 11 win seasons and one 12 win season.

The school says they wanted to take the football program in a different direction. Offensive line coach Damon Nives will be the interim coach until a replacement is found.
