BG Fires Head Football Coach Mike Jinks

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio - Bowling Green has relieved head football coach Mike Jinks of his duties. 

Athletic director Bob Moosbrugger announced the move Sunday afternoon, following the Falcons' 42-35 loss to Western Michigan on Saturday. 

"I want to thank Coach Jinks for all of his efforts with our football program and in the BG community. However, we felt it was time to make a change in leadership. There are not easy decisions and we do not take this lightly. This affects 11 coaching families, 112 student-athletes and numerous support staff. We wish Mike and his family the best in their future endeavors," Mossbrugger said in a statement. 

Jinks spent three years at Bowling Green, compiling a 7-24 overall record and going 5-18 in the MAC. 

Defensive coordinator Carl Pelini will serve as interim head coach.
