MONROE, La. (AP) — Louisiana-Monroe fired coach Terry Bowden on Sunday after the Warhawks finished a fifth straight losing season.

Bowden was 10-26 in three seasons after taking over for Matt Viator and never finished in the upper half of the Sun Belt Conference's West Division.

The Warhawks were 4-8 each of Bowden's first two seasons before falling to 2-10 overall and 0-8 in the Sun Belt this year.

Bowden previously coached seven seasons at Akron and six at Auburn.

ULM hasn't finished above .500 since going 8-5 in 2012 under Todd Berry.
