BREAKING NEWS – Will Wolford announced in a press release Tuesday that he’s stepping down as the head coach of the St. Xavier football program.

"I'm very thankful for the opportunity that St. X has given me to be part of such a special school these last five years,” Wolford said in a press release issued by the school. “Coaching these outstanding kids and working with tremendously talented football coaches has been one of the greatest honors of my life. Special thanks to Alan Donhoff, Frank Espinosa, Dr. Perry Sangalli, and many others for their unconditional support."

The former NFL star went 44-22 during his tenure, including a 12-3 record, and runner-up finish in the 6A Russell Athletic/KHSAA Commonwealth Gridiron Bowl this past season.

"Our football program and our entire community are extremely grateful for all that Will has done for our students and for our school,” St. X athletic director Alan Donhoff said. “As the leader of our program, he has always demonstrated a keen awareness of and desire to achieve Saint Xavier's mission while encouraging our young men to pursue their dreams. We will miss Will as our football coach, but I am sure that he will always be an important member of our St. X family."

St. X will begin the process of hiring a new head football coach immediately.
