Arkansas State coach Steve Roberts resigned on Monday after nine seasons, according to the school. Arkansas State just finished its second straight 4-8 season, and the school has reached a financial settlement with him.

Roberts went 45-63 during his career there. Arkansas State is now the third Sun Belt team in search of a new coach. Louisiana coach Rickey Bustle is out after nine seasons, and North Texas fired coach Todd Dodge midway through the season. The Mean Green are expected to name former Iowa State coach Dan McCarney as its new head coach Tuesday.
