College football coach resigns days before team’s Saturday game
Well they say timing is everything and for Wofford football coach Josh Conklin the time to leave was right now.
Conklin, 43, resigned from the program effective immediately according to the school’s athletic website. He took over the Wofford program in 2018. Conklin’s teams won the Southern Conference in 2018 and 2019 with the Terriers making the FCS playoffs in both seasons.
Things quickly went south as Wofford finished 1-4 in the CoVID-shortened spring FCS season and went 1-10 in 2021.
“We appreciate the time and work that Josh has put into this program over the past five years, which included a pair of Southern Conference Championships,” said Richard Johnson, director of athletics. “We wish nothing but the best for Josh and his family in the future.”
Wofford is currently 0-5 and has been outscored 153-36 in those five games.
