Colorado State parted ways with football coach Mike Bobo after five seasons.

The school released a statement Wednesday saying both sides had "mutually agreed to a separation."

"I would like to thank Mike Bobo for his professionalism, commitment and efforts in leading our football program for the past five seasons," director of athletics Joe Parker said in the release. "... I'm grateful for Mike's contributions to our program and have a deep respect for his personal integrity. We wish Mike well in all his future endeavors."

The Rams (4-8, 3-5 Mountain West) posted their second straight losing season in 2019 and are 28-35 overall since Bobo took over before the 2015 season. That includes a 2-13 record against rivals Colorado, Wyoming and Air Force.

Bobo, 45, posted identical 7-6 records in each of his first three seasons in Fort Collins, losing bowl games in each campaign.

His tenure ended with a 31-24 loss at home last Friday against Boise State.

"Unfortunately, the results the last couple of seasons have not been what we wanted," Bobo said in the release. "I can assure you this was not a reflection of the commitment and hard work that we all put into the program the last five years. Our players and coaches never quit and fought through the final whistle against Boise State. I am so proud of this entire team and staff for their incredible resolve. ... We leave a solid foundation here and I truly believe there are great things ahead for the Rams."

Bobo was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at his alma mater Georgia before coming to Colorado State.

Potential candidates to replace Bobo include Ohio State assistant head coach Tony Alford, who played running back at Colorado State from 1987-90.
