South Carolina State has announced that Buddy Pough will remain Head Coach. Buddy will be back for the 2019 season. There were reports that Coach Pough might walk away after the 2018 season.
Athletics Director Stacy Danley said he was impressed with how the Bulldogs finished the season under Pough’s guidance.
“It’s always a relief to know exactly what the next chapter of your life is going to be,” Pough said. “This is a situation here that’s still fluid of sorts. We’ve got some work to do to make sure we get all the pieces in place, but we think we’re close.”
Pough is four wins away from becoming the all-time winningest coach in SC State football history and he’ll have the chance to achieve that later this year. Willie Jeffries currently holds the record.
