Allen out as Missouri State football coach

Springfield, MO ( – Missouri State said Sunday it will not
bring back football coach Terry Allen after nine seasons.

Allen’s contract expired after Saturday’s regular-season finale at Northern
Iowa. Missouri State had a 4-8 record this season – after a 3-1 start – and was

He told reporters after the UNI game that he had coached his final game at
Missouri State. Athletic director Kyle Moats made that official Sunday at a
news conference.
