COMMERCE (November 12, 2012)--Texas A&M-Commerce coach Guy Morriss has resigned after the Lions went 1-9 this season, the school announced Monday, two days after the team lost 45-14 to West Texas A&M.

Morriss was hired by the Division II school in January 2009 after coaching at Baylor and Kentucky.

He was 10-41 in four seasons at A&M-Commerce.

Morriss made headlines in March 2010 when he apologized for praising his players after they were accused of removing campus newspapers from their racks because of a negative story about the program.

Morriss will remain as a special assistant to the athletic director for fundraising and special projects.

A&M-Commerce said it will immediately begin the search for a new football coach.
