Massie no longer Livingstone's football coach

Staff report
According to an official news release from Livingstone, the college has accepted the request of football coach Lamonte Massie to be reassigned to other duties for the remainder of this year.
The change was made during a meeting Monday, and assistant coach Eric Brown will act as the interim head coach for the rest of the season. Massie will continue to work at Livingstone.
“Coach Massie possesses the qualities that fit with the Holistic College concept, and that is why his services are of value to Livingstone College,” Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins Sr., Livingstone’s president, said in a statement.
The Blue Bears, who went 3-21 with Massie as their head coach, are 0-4 this season. They’ve lost 51-0 each of the past two Saturdays and been outscored 173-19 in four games.
A national coaching search will be conducted at the conclusion of the 2009 season, and Brown will be eligible to apply for the job.
The Blue Bears play host to Lincoln (Pa.) on Saturday at 1 p.m.
