VALPARAISO, Ind. -- Valparaiso coach Dale Carlson has been fired, a day after the Crusaders lost 72-12 to Butler.
Athletic director Mark LaBarbera announced the move Sunday in a news release.
Carlson was in his fourth season leading the Valpo football program and departs with a 3-40 record. The Crusaders are 1-9 and 1-6 in the Pioneer League.
Assistant head coach Mike Gravier will serve as interim coach for the Crusaders' season finale at home against Dayton on Saturday.
