|Donald Hill-Eley appears to be on his way out as Morgan State head coach.|
The winds of change are blowing in many football programs across the country, including several HBCUs. Livingstone and Virginia State of the CIAA have already begun their search for a head coach, as has Florida A&M. According to several internet sources, Morgan State may be the next program looking for a coach.
The Baltimore Sun, as well as websites like Football Scoop are reporting that a change is brewing in Baltimore .The Sun’s report says current head coach Donald Hill-Eley accidentally received an email that the university is seeking a replacement.
Morgan officials have not made an announcement regarding Hill-Eley’s future with the program.
Hill-Ely has coached the Bears for 11 seasons, but he’s been under increased scruitinty for the last two years. Hill-Eley says he hasn’t been given the resources needed to be successful. The program hasn’t won a MEAC Conference Title since 1979. He has compiled a 54-69 record during his time at Morgan.
“It’s about resources, bottom line,” he told The Sun. “They think that just because they have a stadium, that’s enough. But you look at a place like Towson, and they’ve significantly increased their investment in their program. I’m doing everything I can here, and the administration sits back and says I’m already getting enough.”
