If it wasn’t already, it looks like Grambling’s once-proud football program is in disarray. Just minutes after The News-Star reported that Grambling’s football players will sit out of practice for the second-straight day, Matt Vines of the Shreveport Times reports that interim head coach George Ragsdale has been fired.

// “The information comes after a planned 3 p.m. meeting in which players were to discuss whether they were going to play Saturday’s game against Jackson State University. Shortly after the planned time of the meeting, reporters on the scene were told to leave the premises and that GSU coaches and players were off-limits.”

Ragsdale has gone 0-5 since replacing Doug Williams on Sept. 11. Grambling State (0-7) is set to play Jackson State (5-2) on Saturday in Jackson.
