MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — Earlier today, it was announced that former West Virginia University running back QUINCY WILSON has been named the new head coach at the University or Rio Grande (Ohio).

In a social media media, Wilson had the following to say about his new job: “What an unbelievable opportunity to lead the rebirth of Rio Grande Football! Football is a cherished tradition in Ohio. And we look forward to enriching that tradition by having the best student athletes represent the Buckeye state and this University.

Thank you Ryan Smith (President of the University of Rio Grande) for believing in the vision and I cannot wait to work with the great people at the University of Rio Grande.”
