SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) - Texas State has fired coach Everett Withers after he guided the Bobcats to just seven victories in three seasons.

The Bobcats fell to 3-8 on Saturday with a 12-7 loss to Troy. They were 2-10 in each of Withers’ first two seasons at the Sun Belt Conference school that has been playing at the FBS level since 2012.

Athletic director Larry Teis said in a statement Sunday that defensive coordinator Chris Woods will coach the Bobcats in their final game against Arkansas State on Saturday.

Withers was a longtime college and NFL assistant before becoming interim head coach at North Carolina in 2011 following the firing of Butch Davis for NCAA violations. Texas State hired him from FCS James Madison, where in two seasons as coach he was 18-7.
