  • DeBerry Out at Air Force

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=2698568

    Longtime Air Force coach Fisher DeBerry is expected to resign on Friday after 23 seasons at the service academy.


    The Gazette of Colorado Springs, Colo. first reported the story, citing a source with knowledge of the situation.


    DeBerry, who has coached the Falcons for 23 seasons, would leave Air Force with three seasons remaining on his contract, the newspaper reported.

    He has the winningest record in Air Force history, at 169-109-1 with 17 winning seasons. But his past three teams have posted losing records, and this year's team finished 4-8.

    DeBerry, known for his team's triple-option offense, was national coach of the year in 1985, when the Falcons went 12-1 and finished ranked No. 8.




    23 years is a loooong time

        Wow, this is a huge surprise! He was a great coach and did a great job with the lack of talent around him.

          He will be a tough one to replace. It takes a special kind of person to coach at a military academy and he did it very well.

            As a longtime AF fan I can say its a sad time. I thought this year would be a special one the way we came out against Tennessee...but.

            Alas, I wish him a fond farewell.

            At least AF basketball is going strong.
            Rest in Peace, Darrent and Damien. You will be forever in our thoughts

                Even though I am a CSU fan, I agree with that.
