At one point the football program at Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD was one of the powers among historically black colleges & universities. But that was then. In recent years the records haven’t been as good for the team who plays in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

This year’s team finished 3-8, including six straight losses to end the season. Morgan’s last winning season was a 6-5 campaign in 2009.

The 2012 season was head coach Donald Hill-Eley’s eleventh in charge of the football program and he has a 54-69 record over that span. With a general lack of success in recent years and the school wanting to return to its winning ways of decades past it’s understandable that internal discussions would take place regarding a possible change at the head coach position.

Unfortunately for the university Hill-Eley received an email with plans for his being replaced, according to the Baltimore Sun.

“I don’t know what’s going on,” Hill-Eley said when reached today on his cell phone. A university spokesman said he had no immediate comment about Hill-Eley’s status.

“It’s about resources, bottom line,” he said. “They think that just because they have a stadium, that’s enough. But you look at a place like Towson, and they’ve significantly increased their investment in their program. I’m doing everything I can here, and the administration sits back and says I’m already getting enough.”

Hill-Eley said athletic director Floyd Kerr had apologized to him for forwarding the e-mail that contained a schedule for seeking a new coach. He said he has one year left on his contract and that he told Kerr to send any further communications about his status to his agent.

It sounds as though Hill-Eley is becoming frustrated with the support, or lack of, from the university and athletic department so perhaps it wouldn’t be the worst situation if he wasn’t the head coach next season. From Morgan State’s perspective it seems inevitable that an official decision is coming sooner rather than later. I mean, how can on not be after this?
