The Florida State Seminoles have fired head coach Scott Frost after a student-actor died while performing a suicide attempt.
Florida State athletic director Jeff Long announced the termination Monday.
Frost, 45, said he has resigned from his post, effective immediately, and will no longer serve as an assistant athletic director.
He will retain his responsibilities as an associate athletics director for the Seminoles.
The university said in a statement that Frost’s actions were not consistent with our values and our commitment to our students and our community.
“Scott is a strong leader with a bright future.
His death is a painful reminder that the loss of a friend and colleague can cause a great deal of pain.
His impact will be felt for a long time to come,” Long said.
Florida’s football team lost quarterback Treon Harris and cornerback Teez Tabor to injuries in Saturday’s loss to Texas.
The loss is the fifth loss for FSU in the past seven games.
