SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KNSI) Augustana College has fired head football coach Mike Aldrich.
The South Dakota school released a statement Tuesday saying Aldrich and his offensive coordinator, Steve Olinger, have been let go.
Augustana Athletic Director Bill Gross says the search for a new head coach would begin immediately.
Aldrich was Augustana's head coach for three seasons, compiling a record of 22-13. He led the Vikings to their best season in school history in his debut season, when the team went 11-2 and made the NCAA Division II playoffs. Augustana lost to eventual national champion Minnesota Duluth.
The Vikings finished 5-6 this season. They lost their final three home games of the year, one to city rival University of Sioux Falls.
