NATCHITOCHES, La. – Northwestern State athletic director Greg Burke says Bradley Dale Peveto won't return as the Demons' head football coach next season.
Peveto, a former co-defensive coordinator at LSU, came to Northwestern in 2009 and has overseen four losing seasons.
The Demons went 0-11 in his first season, then posted 5-6 records in both 2010 and 2011 before going 4-7 this season.
Burke says Peveto improved Northwestern in the areas of academics, community relations and fundraising, but did not win as much as "anybody associated with the program had hoped."
Peveto says he's "highly disappointed" to be leaving a school he loves and that he'll cherish his memories of Northwestern.
Burke says he'll seek a coach who can restore Northwestern's winning tradition. The Demons' last FCS playoff appearance was in 2004.
