Burris dismissed as Eisenhower football coach

Eisenhower will have a new head football coach in 2019.

Mike Burris confirmed the news of his release to local media on Wednesday afternoon. The decision came nearly two months after the Eagles finished the 2018 season with a 2-8 record, missing the playoffs.

Burris became the first African American head football coach in Lawton history when he took over the team in 2016, leading the program to a 9-22 record during his three-season stint.

He spent more than 20 years as an assistant coach before becoming the head man.
