SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Augustana College has fired head football coach Mike Aldrich.
The South Dakota school released a statement Tuesday saying Aldrich and his offensive coordinator, Steve Olinger, have been let go.
Aldrich did not immediately return messages left by The Associated Press.
Augustana Athletic Director Bill Gross says the search for a new head coach would begin immediately.
Aldrich was Augustana's head coach for three seasons, compiling a record of 22-13. He led the Vikings to their best season in school history in his debut season, when the team went 11-2 and made the NCAA Division II playoffs. Augustana lost to eventual national champion Minnesota Duluth.
The Vikings finished 5-6 this season. They lost their final three home games of the year, one to city rival University of Sioux Falls.
