Mississippi Valley State University will not extend the contract of Rick Comegy as head football coach.
In a statement on the website mvsusports.com, the school announced the decision.
We have decided that the contract of Head Football Coach Rick Comegy, which ends on Dec. 31, 2017, will not be renewed. We are thankful to Coach Comegy for his commitment to the Delta Devils over the past four seasons. We appreciate Coach Comegy for his service to MVSU, and we wish him well in his future endeavors.
As we transition, Vincent Dancy, will serve as MVSU's interim head football coach, and a search committee will begin the process of selecting our next head football coach immediately.
Despite having a SWAC championship (2007) on his resume and two more trips to the SWAC championship game (2012 & 2013) while coaching at in-state rival Jackson State, Comegy was not able to move the Delta Devils into relative success. In his four years at Valley his teams went 6-38 and never won more that two games in a season.
