John Thompson resigns as defensive coordinator


In the face of another blowout, John Thompson has resigned as Texas State’s defensive coordinator.

Thompson’s resignation was first reported by College Football Talk.

Texas State has not appointed an interim defensive coordinator to replace Thompson, who accepted the job prior to the 2014 season.

Last season, Texas State finished seventh in the Sun Belt Conference in total defense.

This season has been a different story. The Bobcats are allowing 49.5 points per game, ranking the team last in the entire country. Only one team in Division I (SMU) is giving up more yards per game than Texas State.

Houston scored 59 points and totaled 689 yards in Saturday night‘s game. It was the second consecutive game in which the Bobcats have allowed more than 600 yards and 50 points.

Texas State has a bye week before its conference season begins Oct. 10 against Louisiana-Lafayette.

The Bobcats finished non-conference play with a 1-3 record.
