Akron fires coach Terry Bowden after 4-8 season

Terry Bowden raised Akron's profile, made the Zips competitive and led them to bowl games over seven seasons. It wasn't enough.

Bowden was fired Sunday, a day after Akron completed a disappointing 4-8 season with a 28-3 loss at South Carolina. The Zips lost their last five games.

Athletic director Larry Williams announced Bowden's dismissal, saying it came after a thorough review of the program in consultation with the school's president and board of trustees.
