Todd Berry dismissed in sixth season at Louisiana-Monroe

MONROE, La. -- Louisiana-Monroe athletic director Brian Wickstrom says coach Todd Berry has been fired.

The move, announced Saturday, comes on the heels of ULM's 59-21 loss to Arkansas State, which dropped the Warhawks to 1-9.

Wickstrom said defensive line coach John Mumford will serve as the interim head coach for the rest of this season.

Berry had been ULM's head coach since the 2010 season.

Wickstrom said Berry "raised the level of the program" and brought it national attention in 2012, when ULM played in the Independence Bowl.

However, this year's struggles have come during construction of a new, $4.1 million end zone addition to Malone Stadium, which was funded by private donations.
