Sacramento State head football coach Marshall Sperbeck says he will resign effective today. In seven years at Sacramento State, Sperbeck posted a 35-44 overall record.

During his tenure, the Hornets gained national attention with victories at Oregon State and Colorado. He also coached 10 players to first team all-Big Sky Conference honors and seven All-Americans.

Jody Sears has been named the interim coach for the 2014 season.

Sears, who joined the Hornet staff as the defensive coordinator this spring, served as the head coach at Weber State the past two seasons and has been a defensive coordinator at Washington State and Eastern Washington.
