The Mickey Mathews era is over at James Madison University. He has been fired as the head football coach of the Dukes after 15 seasons running the show. Mathews coached JMU to an FCS national championship in 2004.
In a case of what have you done for me lately, JMU lost four of their last five games this season to finish at 6-6. They missed out on the playoffs for the fourth time in five years. Mathews is 60 years old and had one year remaining on his contract.
