Bob Toledo Resigns: Tulane Names Mark Hutson Interim Head Coach

As expected, the Tulane Green Wave made official the firing of head football coach Bob Toledo at a Tuesday press conference. Or resignation, if you prefer. The latter is the technical term in this case.

Offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator Mark Hutson will step up as interim coach. Hutson was previously Eastern Illinois' interim head coach. The rest of the coaching staff will stay put for the time being. Hutson called the news of Toledo's exit shocking, but hopes to reach a bowl game. They play the Memphis Tigers next, so that's a good step already.
