BUCKHANNON - Jonas Jackson has resigned as head coach of the West Virginia Wesleyan football team following a two-year tenure in that position.
The school announced the resignation in a release Sunday evening.
Jackson's departure comes on the heels of a tumultuous 3-8 season, that included the Bobcats finishing 2-6 in the WVIAC.
During his first year at the helm, the Bobcats opened 9-0 and climbed into the national rankings before faltering down the stretch with losses to Charleston and league champion Concord. During the 2011 season, Wesleyan averaged 37.2 points per game.
That 9-2 record was followed with this season's tally that included the final three Bobcat losses being by a touchdown or less. Jackson's two-year overall mark ends at 12-10. He served as an assistant his first two seasons to former head coach Denny Creehan.
"We are grateful for the contributions Jonas has provided to our program for the past four years," Wesleyan Athletic Director Randy Tenney said. "We wish him well in his future career endeavors."
Wesleyan plans to begin the search for a new coach immediately.
