EDMOND (Nov. 14) -- University of Central Oklahoma president W. Roger Webb announced today he has decided to take the university's football program in a different direction and that UCO head coach Chuck Langston will not return next season.
Webb said no one is more disappointed with the progress of the team than Langston, but that it is time for UCO to go in a direction of different leadership to turn the program around.
"This was an extremely difficult decision for me because I have enjoyed my relationship with Chuck Langston," Webb said. "However, for the future of the program, I believe a change must be made."
Webb said a search for a new coach will begin immediately.
The assistant coaching staff will remain under the direction of defensive coordinator Steve Patterson.
The Bronchos went 29-24 in Langston's five years at the helm.
