JERSEY CITY, N.J., Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Saint Peter's College football coach Scott Kochman was fired Friday for using ineligible players in a Sept. 4 game against Monmouth College.

The school said on its Web Kochman 's contract was terminated effective immediately. Director of Athletics William Stein appointed Chris Taylor as Kochman's successor.

"We are steadfastly committed to conducting our program in accordance with all NCAA rules and we are dealing with this issue proactively," Stein said.

The site said the college's investigation revealed the rules violations and that its Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has begun the process of self-reporting in accordance with NCAA rules and procedures.

No further details can be released because of privacy concerns and the ongoing investigation, the school said. In spite of the use of the ineligible players, St. Peter's lost the contest, 44-3.
