Western Michigan was officially eliminated from contention in the Mid-American Conference West division Tuesday night.

On Wednesday night, the Broncos announced that they have parted ways with defensive coordinator Tim Daoust.

The announcement came after Western Michigan gave up 42 points in a loss to a three-win Ball State team was ranked ranked 99th in the country in scoring, averaging 24.5 points per game.

In the three straight losses that knocked them out of the division race, the Broncos gave up 51, 59 and 42 points.

“I appreciate Tim and his family’s dedication to the Bronco football family these past two seasons,” head coach Tim Lester said in a statement. “At this time I felt we needed to go in a different direction.”

Co-defensive coordinator Lou Esposito will take over Daoust’s duties for the rest of the season.
