Bowling Green has fired Gregg Brandon after six years as head coach, the school announced today.Brandon, who got the Bowling Green job when Urban Meyer left to become the head coach at Utah, finishes his tenure at Bowling Green with a 44-30 record, including 6-6 this season.”This was a difficult decision, but ultimately I believe it’s time for BGSU football to make a coaching change,” said athletic director Greg Christopher. “Gregg’s time at Bowling Green has been marked by a number of accomplishments. I want to thank him for his dedication and commitment to Falcon football. … Finding the right person to lead the young men of our football team is our top priority.”The firing comes just 10 months after Brandon signed a contract extension through the 2011 season. But it was a rough off-season at Bowling Green, where members of the team got into legal trouble and failed out of school. Brandon also didn’t make any friends when he criticized Bowling Green fans for low attendance. He won’t have to worry about how many fans turn out at Bowling Green anymore.
