Morand is released is head football coach

Michael Morand has been released as Head Football Coach at Saint Augustine’s University effective Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2015. Tim Chavous will be the Interim Head Coach for the remainder of the season.
“We appreciate the service that Coach Morand has given us in the last year and a half,” Athletic Director George Williams said. “However, the university has found it necessary to proceed in a different direction.”
A native of St. Petersburg, Fla., Chavous has been the running backs coach and the team’s academic coordinator at Saint Augustine’s University for four years. He has played a huge role in the development of Falcons’ back Roderick Davenport, who led the CIAA in rushing and earned All-CIAA and All-Region honors in 2014. Davenport is a Preseason All-CIAA selection this season.
The Falcons have excelled in the classroom since Chavous became the academic coordinator in 2012. They have won three consecutive awards for having the highest grade point average of all the CIAA football teams.
