Itta Bena, MS (SportsNetwork.com) - Mississippi Valley State University is not bringing head football coach Karl Morgan back next year after he compiled an 8-35 record in four seasons.

The Southwestern Athletic Conference school said on Monday Morgan's contract will not be renewed when it expires Dec. 31.

The Delta Devils finished 2-9 this season, including 2-7 in SWAC games.

"We feel that it is imperative that we move the football program in a different direction. We would like to thank Coach Morgan for his years of service to MVSU," the athletic program said in a statement.

Morgan's best season was in 2012, when Mississippi Valley State finished 5-4 in the SWAC and 5-6 overall. He became the first MVSU coach to lead victories over Southern and Grambling State in the same season since Archie Cooley in 1984.

The 42-year-old's 2010 squad finished 0-10 and his 2011 team went 1-10.
