Longtime Offensive Coordinator Fired After Loss On Saturday

0

On Saturday night, one college football program reportedly decide to make a major change to its coaching staff.

The Navy football program has reportedly moved on from longtime offensive coordinator Ivin Jasper. According to a report from Bill Wagner of Capital Gazette Communications, Navy made the decision after a 23-3 loss to Air Force.

The decision came after Jasper’s program put up just three points on Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, Navy didn’t improve on a seven-point effort against Marshall from Week 1.

With that in mind, it sounds like head coach Ken Niumatalolo decided a change needed to be made.

Few assistant coaches have been with one program longer than Ivin Jasper. He took over as the team’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2008.

Before then, he served as the team’s quarterbacks coach from 2002-07. In total, Jaspers served as an assistant coach at Navy for over 20 years, if you add in the two years he spent with the Naval Academy in 1995-96.

Unfortunately for Jasper, though, his offense just didn’t get the job done so far this season. Navy put up a total of 10 points in its first two games.

On Saturday afternoon, the Midshipmen managed just 68 yards of total offense.

While this season didn’t get off to the best start, Jasper has been in charge of some of Navy’s best statistical seasons.
