NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) - Northwestern State athletic director Greg Burke says Bradley Dale Peveto won't return as the Demons' head football coach next season.
Peveto, a former co_defensive coordinator at LSU, came to Northwestern in 2009 and has overseen four losing seasons.
The Demons went 0-11 in his first season, then posted 5-6 records in both 2010 and 2011 before going 4-7 this season.
Burke says Peveto improved Northwestern in the areas of academics, community relations and fundraising, but did not win as much as ``anybody associated with the program had hoped.''
Peveto says he's ``highly disappointed'' to be leaving a school he loves and that he'll cherish his memories of Northwestern.
Burke says he'll seek a coach who can restore Northwestern's winning tradition. The Demons' last FCS playoff appearance was in 2004.
