Eastern Kentucky is eighth among nine teams in the Ohio Valley Conference in scoring.

RICHMOND, Ky. – Eastern Kentucky University offensive coordinator Angelo Mirando has been dismissed from his position, Head Coach Mark Elder announced today.

Assistant Head Coach/Tight Ends Coach Tommy Zagorski will serve as the offensive coordinator for the remainder of the 2018 season.

Through seven games this season, Eastern Kentucky is eighth among nine teams in the Ohio Valley Conference in scoring. The Colonels are ninth in total offense and ninth in passing offense.

“I want to thank Angelo for all of his effort, hard work, dedication and passion for EKU football,” Elder said. “These decisions are never easy because they impact relationships and the lives of real people.
