The Connecticut Huskies have fired football coach Bob Diaco after just three seasons, the school announced Monday.

“I know this may come as a surprise to our fans and supporters given the timing of this decision,” athletic director David Benedict said in a statement. “However, it became apparent to me that a change in program direction is necessary at this time.”

Diaco was 11-26 in three seasons with the Huskies, who finished the season five weeks ago. In May, he agreed to a two-year contract extension through the 2020 season. He earned $1.7 million this season and was set to earn $1.8 million in 2017.

He will officially be relieved of his duties on Jan. 2 and will receive a buyout of $3.4 million, which would’ve been $5 million had he been fired effective Dec. 31 or earlier.
