Ron Strollo has known Jon Heacock for almost half of his life.
According to Strollo, YSU's Executive Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, they spent more time with each other than they did with their own families over those years. Strollo addressed the media at a special press conference on Monday and spoke about a host of issues including why Heacock chose to step down, who will be considered for the vacancy, and what factors will finalize the decision. Strollo also commented on the recent turn of events saying, "We talked last week. I knew it was something he was considering. I spoke with him yesterday about an hour before he spoke to his team and staff." Strollo commented that the assistant coaches are under contract until February. When asked if the staff will be somewhat retained, Strollo remarked, "They will have opportunities to speak with the new head coach. However, it would be hard to hold a head coach accountable if you tell him who his soldiers are." This search will be like no other because there is little time to work with. Strollo noted that the candidate they will be looking for should have Division-I coaching experience, have alot of energy, and be devoted to a busy recruiting process. He also said that many schools, unlike the Big-10, are still playing their regular season out and it would not make sense to bother anyone while they are doing their job elsewhere. Once the time is right, the field would be narrowed. Strollo admitted talking to an old friend, Jim Tressel, about the sudden turn of events. Heacock was the lowest paid coach in the Missouri Valley Football Conference and Strollo said that the pay for the new YSU Coach will be contingent on the qualified candidate's experience. I asked Strollo after the press conference if Charlie Weiss was on his list. Strollo and Heacock are both quality people. "I've known Jon since my senior year on the football team in 1991, and he has always been a genuine, caring person for the Youngstown State program and the community," said Ron Strollo, Executive Director of Intercollegiate Athletics.

Strollo has been fantastic and has seemed to make all of the right moves in the past couple of years. Executive Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, Ron Strollo, said that the Penguins will begin to search for a new mentor immediately. "I want to thank Coach Pasquale for his service to our department, the university, and the community in his five seasons as our head baseball coach,"said Strollo. Ron Strollo (above) is finally getting to see the benefits of his hard work. The athletic director at Youngstown State had come under fire three years ago. When Jon Heacock was failing, both basketball programs were declining, and all the other sports we had to have for scholarship and conference alignment purposes, no one was sure if Strollo could survive. Strollo made the right decision in rewarding Slocum a few more years as the program continues to move forward. The WATTS proved to be a terrific venue for the event and Strollo reflected on the feedback. Strollo has surrounded himself with outstanding personnel. This department has evolved into a prototype of how a collegiate athletic department should be run. The marketing and sports information departments have exemplified consistency, which can be tough with subpar products. Fortunately, the products are 'new and improved' and will continue to draw bigger crowds. Keep up the good work Ron Strollo, and thanks for what you have done so far. Who Would Win On Jeopardy Out of Damian Eargle, Coach Slocum, and Ron Strollo? One of the 25 members in attendance was current YSU Athletic Director, Ron Strollo. "We have really made an investment over the past four or five years in our facilities and the community has really jumped on board", said Strollo. "Construction companies, plumbers, and electricians have donated to the improvements that will ensure our facilities continue to stay at the top of the line". IMG_6316 Surrounded by a great staff, Strollo is always accessible and genuine with an answer to a question. He attends many sporting events and the thing I admire the most about him is that he can talk on any level with anyone. "We try to compare what we have here to major Division-I schools", commented Strollo. Keep up the good work, Mr. Strollo! Their experience at the pro, collegiate and high school levels is unparalleled," Strollo said.
