New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Fordham football coach Joe Moorhead has
signed a contract extension through the 2021 season, the Patriot League
university announced Tuesday.
Details of the contract were not disclosed.
Fordham had a 12-2 record this season, beating Sacred Heart in the first round
of the FCS playoffs before falling to Towson this past Saturday.
For the second straight year, Moorhead is a finalist for the Eddie Robinson
Award as national coach of the year. The Rams were ranked as high as fifth in
the nation after winning their first 10 games.
"We are thrilled that Coach Moorhead will be leading our football program
through the 2021 season," said Fordham athletics director David Roach. "What
Coach Moorhead has accomplished in two short years has been truly remarkable.
He is a terrific football coach and a tremendous representative of Fordham
University. Our success this year is a direct result of how our student
athletes have responded to his leadership and vision. He is an excellent role
model and we are fortunate to have him at Fordham. We all look forward to next
season and future seasons with Joe Moorhead as our head coach."
Moorhead took over a 1-10 team following the 2011 season and went 6-5 in
2012. The six wins were most for a first-year Fordham coach since 1933.
