Jerry Glanville resigns

Jerry Glanville has resigned as head coach of the Portland State Vikings after three losing seasons.

This past season, Portland State went 2-9 overall and 1-7 in the Big Sky Conference. Over Glanville's tenure the Vikings went 9-24.

Glanville, who coached in the NFL and was known for his 3-4 defense as well as a penchant for wearing black, was not available for comment Tuesday.

Portland State athletic director Torre Chisholm said he and Glanville mutually agreed on his resignation late Monday night.

He praised Glanville, 68, for his commitment.

"He brought an energy level and a sense of character to our program," Chisholm said. "It was infectious."

In the end, however, Glanville's gregarious energy did not translate into wins on the field.
