Youngstown State fires Eric Wolford


Youngstown State on Monday dismissed Eric Wolford as head coach.

A Brookfield, Ohio, native and Ursuline High graduate, Wolford was a four-year starter at guard for Kansas State who spent 15 years working his way up the coaching ranks. He spent two seasons at Illinois before joining Steve Spurrier at South Carolina in 2009.

But Wolford also ignored Spurrier’s advice not to take the YSU job, believing he was ready to take the next step.

Wolford was 31-26 in five seasons.
