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.
