Purdue Lets Go of Hope

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Danny Hope is out as Purdue’s football coach. One day after the Boilermakers retained the Old Oaken Bucket with a 56-35 victory over Indiana and became bowl eligible for the second straight season, athletic director Morgan Burke announced that Hope had been fired. After replacing the winningest coach in school history, Hope went 22-27 in four seasons with teams that were ravaged by injuries.
