Dale Lennon, one of the most successful football coaches in University of North Dakota football history, was fired Monday as Southern Illinois’ head coach.
Lennon, who took over the Southern Illinois program after Jerry Kill left for Northern Illinois following the 2007 season, compiled a 51-42 record in his eight seasons at Southern Illinois. His first two teams advanced to the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs and were 15-1 in Missouri Valley Football Conference play.
But during Lennon’s final six seasons, Southern Illinois failed to make the playoffs and were 21-27 in the Missouri Valley. This past season, the Salukis finished with a 3-8 overall record and 2-6 in conference play.

Lennon spent the 1987 season as an assistant coach at Dickinson State before moving on to be an assistant at UND.
