As of Sunday afternoon, Georgia Southern has relieved Tyson Summers of his duties as the Eagles’ head coach.

Summers began the 2017 with very low expectations and managed to underachieve even those, starting the season 0-6 with no loss coming by less than eight points.

The Eagles seemingly bottomed out just two games into this season, falling to FCS New Hampshire 22-12 on Sept. 9.

Georgia Southern will look to hire its third head coach since 2014 when the season is comes to an end on Dec. 1.
