Kevin Porter will not return for a fifth season as Fort Valley State’s head coach, the school announced Thursday.

The school will conduct a national search for Porter’s replacement, which will begin “immediately.” Fort Valley State is a Division II school located in Fort Valley, Ga.

In four seasons on the job, Porter went 18-23, but among those 18 victories were a Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title in 2016, hosting a SIAC title game in 2017 and a 6-4 mark in 2019, an improvement upon 2018’s 2-8 record.

Porter accomplished that all while, according to a source, operating with 14 scholarships, less than half of the 36 allotted to Division II schools.

Porter is a former NFL player who has also served as a head coach in the Arena Football League.
