Central Michigan has fired coach John Bonamego after the team went 1-11 this season. Bonamego went 22-29 (15-17 in MAC play) in four seasons with the Chippewas.

Defensive backs coach Cory Hall will lead CMU until a permanent coach is named. He was Oregon State's interim head coach for the final six games in 2017.
