Nacogdoches — Kevin Gore of the Nacogdoches Daily Sentinel tells KETK Sports Director Danny Elzner that SFA has bought out its football coach.
J. C. Harper is out after seven seasons as head coach of the Lumberjacks.
Harper won back-to-back conference championships for the first time in school history in 2009 and 2010.
But the Lumberjacks had a losing record for the last two seasons.
Stephen F. Austin was 3-9 this season.
The Jacks lost their last five straight and seven of their last eight.
Harper leaves SFA with an overall record of 37-45.
He had four years remaining on his contract.
