Associated Press

Troy has fired coach Chip Lindsey with one game left in his third season.

Athletic director Brent Jones announced the firing Sunday of Lindsey, who was 15-19. Defensive coordinator Brandon Hall will finish out the season as interim coach. "I appreciate Coach Lindsey's hard work over these last three years," Jones said in a statement. "However, after significant review, a change in leadership is needed. I met with Coach Lindsey this afternoon and informed him that we would be making a change effective immediately.

"Our expectation for our football program is to compete for championships, and that resolve has not waivered."

He said a search for Lindsey's replacement would start immediately. Lindsey is a former offensive coordinator at Southern Miss, Arizona State and Auburn.

"Ultimately, we fell short of our goal of producing a championship-winning team," Lindsey said. "I am grateful to the administration at Troy for giving me this opportunity to serve as head coach."
