Louisiana-Lafayette has fired football coach Rickey Bustle, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Sunday.

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the university has not announced the move, says athletic director David Walker plans to discuss Bustle's firing at a regularly scheduled basketball media luncheon on Monday.

Bustle declined talk about his future at ULL after the Ragin' Cajuns defeated Louisiana-Monroe 23-22 in their season finale on Saturday.

Bustle has coached the Cajuns since 2002, posting a 41-65 record. Louisiana-Lafayette, which plays in the Sun Belt Conference, went 3-9 this season. Bustle had four six-win seasons, but never coached ULL to a bowl game.
