Baltimore, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - Morgan State University said Monday it will not bring Donald Hill-Eley back as its head football coach after 12 seasons.

Hill-Eley's contract expired after this season. His departure comes about one year after he accidentally received an email outlining the administration's plan to find his replacement.

The 44-year-old had a 59-76 record at the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference university, including 5-7 this season. But the Bears finished 5-3 in MEAC games for their first winning conference record since 2004.

"We are grateful for Donald Hill-Eley's 12 years of commitment to this university," said Morgan State athletic director Floyd Kerr. "I join hundreds of former athletes, graduates, coaches and Bears fans in thanking Coach Hill- Eley for his service to Morgan."

University officials expect to name an acting head coach in the coming weeks while they search for a successor to Hill-Eley.
