Following the loss against Montana State during the Brawl of the Wild, Head Coach Bob Stitt has been let go from Grizzly football. 

Montana Director of Athletics Kent Haslam said that Stitt's contract won't be renewed for the 2018 season. The following was stated in Haslam's press release: 

“These decisions are always difficult, and I understand how this impacts many people,” said Haslam. “I appreciate Bob’s contributions to the University of Montana and Grizzly Athletics. He worked tirelessly to move the football program forward with a focus on overall student-athlete success.”

Stitt is 21-14, was 14-10 in the Big Sky Conference, 1-2 verse MSU and had one playoff appearance in three years. 

At the same-day press conference, Haslam emphasized that he hasn't had any contact with potential replacements. Run Game Coordinator/Offensive Line Chad Germer will step up to lead the team, though he won't take on an interim coach title.

Running Backs/Recruiting Coordinator Justin Green will reach out to recruits as the Griz search for a replacement.
