Source: Grambling interim football coach George Ragsdale is fired."The information comes after a planned 3 p.m. meeting in which players were to discuss whether they were going to play Saturday's game against Jackson State University. Shortly after the planned time of the meeting, reporters on the scene were told to leave the premises and that GSU coaches and players were off-limits."
