Alabama State football coach Reggie Barlow has fired two more assistant coaches. Defensive Coordinator Tony Pierce and Linebackers and Special Teams coach Brian Williams were let go Sunday.
Pierce just finished his 6th season as ASU's Defensive Coordinator. The Hornets defense was ranked 19th out of 118 teams in the country this year. They gave up just over 22 points a game.
WSFA Sports talked to coach Pierce on the phone and he said, "I sort of felt it was coming. I'll be alright. In the end, this will be a blessing."
A few months ago, Barlow fired his offensive coordinator and offensive line coach.
