College Football World Reacts To Bizarre Situation At Navy


A bizarre situation appears to be developing within the Navy football program.

Saturday night, Navy announced that longtime offensive coordinator Ivin Jasper had been fired. The news was pretty shocking for the college football world, as Jasper has been with the program for a long time.

Navy’s decision to fire the offensive coordinator came after Saturday’s 23-3 loss to Air Force.

Monday afternoon, we got an update on the story.

According to Navy head coach Ken Niumatalolo, the decision to fire Jasper was made by the school’s athletic director.

“He wasn’t happy with the way things transpired and he’s the leader of the department,” the head coach announced.

It’s pretty bizarre for an athletic director to mandate the in-season firing of an assistant coach for performance reasons. The story isn’t over yet, though.

Niumatalolo announced that Jasper has since been brought back. He won’t be the offensive coordinator, however – instead, he’ll coach quarterbacks.

Jasper had been the program’s offensive coordinator since 2008. Now, he’ll work on the staff in a different role.

It’s certainly an odd situation.

Another assistant coach is reportedly out, too. One of Navy’s assistant coaches is no longer with the program after refusing the vaccine for “religious” reasons.

Navy is off to an 0-2 start this season.
