"We are very excited to have Coach Wolford join the Youngstown State Football Family," YSU Athletics Director Ron Strollo said.
A message seeking comment was left late Sunday with YSU director of athletics Ron Strollo.
First reports out of South Carolina indicated that Wolford was not interested in interviewing for the job, but it's pretty common knowledge now that YSU athletic director Ron Strollo went to Columbia, S.C., the first week of December to interview him.
YSU athletic director Ron Strollo is a member of the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision selection committee and must be in Chattanooga, Tenn., on Thursday to help get things ready for Friday night's national championship game there.
Any of the three names mentioned earlier would seem to be a good fit for the Penguins, but then again Strollo has been bouncing around all over the country the past few weeks and there's always a chance a name out of nowhere could just pop up this week.
Whoever and whenever Strollo makes his decision, it will be the biggest one that he's made since he's been the school's AD since his hiring in 2001.
YOUNGSTOWN - Sometime within the next week or two Youngstown State Athletic Director Ron Strollo is going to make the biggest decision in the nine years that he's been the head of the university's athletic department.
Somewhere in that time span Strollo will name a new head football coach for the Penguins, most likely before Christmas and possibly even sooner.
Hiring a head coach is not something that is new to Strollo. He's done it eight times in the last nine seasons, but none of those hires were anything like this one.
But other than women's basketball most of those programs have been losing steadily long before Strollo took over the job.
It is also true that the job of an athletic director involves a lot more than just hiring and firing head coaches and Strollo has certainly been the picture of success in his other roles as athletic director.
Outside of YSU, Strollo is very involved on the regional and national levels of the NCAA, serving on several prominent committees.
He is currently in his first of four years on the NCAA Division I Football Championship Selection Committee, the NCAA Division I Football Issues Committee and serves as the Central Regional Chair of the NCAA Regional Advisory Committee. He also is on the Executive Committee of the FCS Athletic Directors Association and serves as the Chair of the Horizon League Executive Committee.
During his tenure, Strollo has placed a priority on the construction and enhancements of the school's athletic venues. Currently he is leading the final phases of a capital campaign to construct the Watson and Tressel Training Site, a $10 million indoor athletic practice facility which will include an indoor track and football practice field.
And Strollo is in no way finishes as he has big plans for the property that the university has recently gained control of just across Fifth Avenue from the Stadium. Here he has plans for a new softball complex, new tennis courts and possibly even a soccer field and outdoor track.
You can also credit Strollo for getting the Penguins into a big money football game as he has done each of the last five seasons against major teams from the Football Bowl Subdivision. Those games against Pitt, Penn State and Ohio State have generated between $350,000 and $650,000 each year and have made possible a lot of the improvements listed above.
But regardless of all the good things that Strollo has accomplished over the last nine years, the one thing that everybody is most interested and concerned about is that next decision he will be making.
YSU Athletic Director Ron Strollo says the search is ongoing.
