Thomas out at Northwestern State; more coaching changes expected

(STATS) - The head coaching carousel could very well turn often in the coming weeks as many FCS programs begin to conclude the 2017 season.

The latest change is occurring at Northwestern State, which announced it isn't renewing coach Jay Thomas' contract after five seasons. He was set to coach his final game against Southland Conference rival Stephen F. Austin on Saturday.

Thomas, 57, has a 20-36 record with the Demons, including 14-27 in the Southland. He also coached Nicholls for six seasons from 2004-09 and has a 47-71 career record.
