Football Program Announces Staffing Changes
Watson served as defensive coordinator and was in his first season, while Ford coached the defensive backs and had been recruiting coordinator for the past three seasons.
"I'd like to thank Coach Watson and Coach Ford for all they've done for the football program," said Nichols. "I wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors."
A national search for Watson's and Ford's replacements will be conducted over the next several weeks.
