DALLAS (AP) - SMU fired football coach Phil Bennett today. The former Texas A&M player and asistant coach will finish out the season with the Mustangs.
Athletic director Steve Orsini says while he appreciates what
Bennett has done for the school, he feels it is time for a change.
The announcement comes a day after the Mustangs fell to 1-7 with
a 29-23 loss to Tulsa.
The Mustangs have four games remaining.
Bennett is 18-48 in six seasons. The Mustangs were bowl eligible
last year but didn't play in a bowl.
