FAMU loses head coach and director

Both FAMU football head coach Rubin Carter and athletic director Nelson Townsend were dismissed from the university by President James Ammons following closed door discussions this afternoon.

Carter and Townsend were hired under former interim president Castell Bryant’s tenure nearly two years ago. Nelson will be leaving after serving his second stint as athletic director for FAMU.

FAMU finished the regular season 3-8 overall and 2-6 in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play, with its last loss coming from the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats at this weekend’s Walt Disney World Florida Classic.
