Wolford hired at Oklahoma State

STILLWATER, Oklahoma (WKBN) – Former YSU Head Coach Eric Wolford is back in the college football ranks. He was officially hired as an offensive assistant on Mike Gundy’s staff at Oklahoma State on Thursday.

Wolford was fired back in November after leading YSU’s program for five years, posting a record of 31-26.

He led the Penguins to a 2012 victory over Pittsburgh and a 2011 road win over top-ranked North Dakota State. His 2011 squad set more than 30 team and game individual and season school records and the offense ranked among the top 15 in the Football Championship Subdivision in 13 different categories. Playing an 11-game regular season, the Penguins were the only team in the FCS to rush and pass for more than 2,500 yards.

In his 21 years of college coaching experience, Wolford has made previous stops at Kansas State, Emporia State, South Florida, Houston, North Texas, Arizona, Illinois and South Carolina.
