The Mississippi Fire Dogs defeated the Mobile Seagulls 52 to 28 Sunday night in the Mississippi Coast Coliseum. Besides the action on the playing field more action took place on the sidelines. Mobile owner David Stevens left the stands in the 3rd quarter after quarterback and head coach John Fourcade threw his 2nd interception. He asked Fourcade to put in backup quarterback Virgil Gardner. Fourcade and Stevens exchanged words and punches.
After the game Stevens said he fired Fourcade. John said he quit because he won't have an owner make sideline decisions for him. Mississippi dropped the Seagulls to 4 and 3 in the National Indoor Professional Football League standings, two games behind the Fire Dogs (6-1) and Lake Charles (6-1).
The Fire Dogs travel to Lake Charles this Saturday in a clash for sole possession of first place in the Southern Division.
