DeBord out at Central Michigan

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. -- Mike DeBord resigned as Central
Michigan's football coach Wednesday.

Central Michigan finished 3-9 this season, and DeBord's
four-year record at the school was 12-34.

"It was the most difficult decision I've ever made," DeBord
said in a statement. "I felt to finish the rebuilding process that
we needed more resources and guaranteed time.''

Central Michigan athletic director Herb Deromedi said DeBord's
decision to leave was his own.

"Neither the athletics department nor any representative of the
university asked for a resignation," Deromedi said in a statement.
