YSU coach Wolford to get contract extension

Published: Fri, January 10, 2014 @ 2:54 p.m.

Youngstown State head football coach Eric Wolford will get a contract extension, YSU athletic director Ron Strollo said Friday.

Wolford was entering the final year of his original five-year contract. He is coming off an 8-4 season in which he finished 5-3 in the Missouri Valley Football Conference, which tied the Penguins for second place with South Dakota State, Missouri State and Southern Illinois.

Wolford has increased his win total each year, from three wins in 2010 to six in 2011 to seven in 2012. However, YSU has missed the playoffs in each of his four seasons.

A brilliant win-win decision by Mr Strollo: if the Guins fall short again and the coach is cut loose, people will say "That Strollo sure gave Wolf more than a chance." And if the Guins make the playoffs, "That Strollo is a wise judge of potential!" (I pray in advance for the latter. Light the candles.)

Good coaches improve their teams during the season so that they play their best at the end of the season. Seems to me the Penguins have been doing the exact opposite for the last few seasons, including losses to pathetic teams. Thus, next season will start great, YSU gets beat by the league powers and when the money is on the table, they will fold and have another 8 win season. Well, it will be the punter's fault, or the kicker's fault, or the inexperienced QB's fault. Everyone but Eric. How about they make him a deal. If you make the playoffs, you get double the pay but if you tank again, you work gratis!
