According to reports, Georgia State Panthers head coach Trent Miles has been fired after a disappointing 2-8 start to the season. The decision comes after a 37-23 loss to Louisiana Monroe over the weekend.
Miles’ firing comes less than one year after he was named the Sun Belt Coach of the Year and led the Panthers to their first bowl appearance.

Miles becomes the fifth FBS coach to be fired this season.
The 53-year-old coach joins Les Miles (LSU), Ron Turner (FIU), Darrell Hazell (Purdue) and Tim DeRuyter (Fresno State) as the available names on the market.
During his tenure at Georgia State, Miles recorded a miserable 9–38 record, including a 6–23 mark in conference play.
The program is clearly ready to move on and look for a spark moving into the future.
Georgia State beings the post-Miles era next Saturday against Georgia Southern at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
