Jordan Carver of the Tallahassee Democrat is reporting that Florida A&M head football coach Earl Holmes has been fired.
From the Democrat:
“Flemng said Holmes addressed the players in a 1 p.m. meeting and informed them he had been terminated. Fleming also stressed that players will play in Saturday’s homecoming game against Norfolk State. There was speculation, according to Fleming, that players would boycott the game.” In a tweet reported by Carver, FAMU quarterback Damien Fleming said that the players would not boycott the game.
Holmes, who took over the program in 2012, leaves FAMU with an overall record of 6-16. The Rattlers, currently 2-6, began the season 0-5.
