St. Augustine’s football coach Tim Chavous tweeted just a few hours ago that he had been fired “as of 4:05 p.m.”

Chavous, who also had an entirely new coaching staff, had his best season as head coach in 2017 when the Falcons finished 5-5. No official word from St. Aug’s and Chavous photo is still up on the website. The Falcons travel to Bowie State on Saturday.
