BATON ROUGE – Three assistant coaches and a coordinator all departed the Southern University football program Wednesday.

The most recent was Chad Germany, a coordinator, who resigned. The other three left after being terminated, sources confirmed to the WBRZ Sports Department.

Coaches Lorick Atkinson, Myron Jackson and Chris Scott were fired.

Sources speculate the post-season changes are being made to fund a defensive coordinator, freeing head coach Dawson Odums from also handling those duties.

Southern's football season ended with a loss to Grambling at the Bayou Classic Saturday at the Superdome.
