Alex Wood out as FAMU football coach

Alex Wood

Florida A&M is looking for a new head coach after letting Alex Wood walk after three seasons in Tallahassee.

The winds of change continue to blow in Tallahassee, as Alex Wood is now out as football coach.

Wood has resigned his position as head coach, effective Nov. 20. Assistant Edwin Pata has been named interim head coach.

Rumors had been circulating that Wood would be let go if he didn’t resign, but his players were notified of the change Monday morning, according to Jordan Culver of Tallahassee.com.

Hired following the 2014 season, the Rattlers went 8-25 under Wood’s direction, including a 3-8 season in 2017. His best season was 2016 when the team went 4-7.

FAMU will now have to replace its football coach as well as its athletic director, as Milton Overton has taken that position at Kennesaw State.
