No wins (and no pointspread covers) for the Charlotte 49ers prompted head coach to Brad Lambert to make a few coaching changes over the weekend. Offensive coordinator Jeff Mullen was demoted and run-game coordinator Greg Adkins will take his place. The 49ers started 0-2 with expected losses to Eastern Michigan and Kansas State. But a 35-31 loss to FCS NC A&T and last week's 28-0 home loss to bottom feeder Georgia State was more than enough reason for Lambert to "
." Charlotte has now failed to cover its last seven games dating back to last season. They travel to FIU this Saturday.
“No question, we need to be more competitive,” said Lambert. “Our players and coaches come in every day and work hard to win football games. But, we need a change, offensively. Coach Adkins has a lot of experience from an offensive standpoint and has coached at just about every level, including the NFL and (Power Five) conferences and we feel really good about what he can bring to that unit.”
