NMU head football coach let go

MARQUETTE — This past weekend, the Northern Michigan football team lost 56-7 at Tiffin in their season finale. They ended the season with a 3-7 record, losing their last six games of the season, including three straight at home.

With results like that, upper management decided a change needed to be made.

According to Mining Journal , NMU athletic director Forrest Karr informed head coach Chris Ostrowsky that he will not be back with the team next year.

Ostrowsky had spent the past five seasons with the Wildcats, compiling an 18-36 record. His best season came in 2015 where the team went 5-6, their most wins since 2010. According to NMU president Fritz Erickson, the search for a new head coach will begin as soon as possible and will be completed in as short a timeline as possible.
