Dawon Dicks out at ND-Fairfield

Dawon Dicks has been let go as head football coach at Notre Dame-Fairfield after one season. The news was first reported on Twitter on Tuesday morning.

ND athletic director Rob Bleggi later released a brief statement, which read:

"Coach Dicks is no longer the head football coach at Notre Dame-Fairfield. I have no further comment on the matter."

Notre Dame went 1-9 last season.

The Fairfield, Conn. Sports page on Facebook had this information:

According to twitter, Notre Dame Fairfield’s Dawon Dicks has been dismissed as the school's head football coach. Players and students took to twitter late Monday night in protest of Dick’s dismissal using the hash tag #WeWantCoachD.

The school has yet to confirm or deny that Dick’s will no longer be coach. Via a text message early Tuesday morning, Notre Dame athletic director Rob Bleggi said he had no comment at this time.

Dicks, an alumnus of the school, was hired as the Lancers coach in August and went 1-9 in his lone season. Since Jeff Bevino stopped coaching the Lancers in 2005, Notre Dame has had four different coaches and now will have three different coaches in three years come the fall.
