Florida A&M's head football coach Earl Holmes has been relieved of his duties, according to WANM 90.5 sources. Those sources also said defensive backs coach Corey Fuller will be named the team’s interim coach. 

The weekly Tuesday press conference, which Holmes participates in, along with players, was canceled abruptly this afternoon without any media advisory. Both Holmes and Athletic Director Kellen Winslow declined to comment. 

Holmes is 5-15 over one and a half seasons as FAMU’s head coach. He also went 1-1 as interim coach when former head coach Joe Taylor stepped down in November 2012.

The Rattlers, who started this season 0-5 -- the worst start in school history -- won two games before falling to North Carolina A&T on Saturday, 41-20. They're homecoming game is scheduled for this Saturday at 3 p.m. against Norfolk State University.

There has been no official word from the university in reference to Holmes' job.
