Missouri State football coach Dave Steckel is coming back for a sixth season and will still be expected to turn the program around despite the odds being against him.

Steckel is one of 27 coaches in FCS history to lose 40 or more games in five seasons. None of the other 26 qualified for the postseason even after some kept their job, like Steckel, with the poor record.
