“I am extraordinarily grateful for Hunter Hughes and the efforts of the coaching staff. Under his leadership, the football program has achieved historical high marks in the classroom including graduation rates” said Director of Athletics Michael McBroom. “Our football team’s performance has also improved under his leadership, with several wins over ranked opponents ... However, the number of Division II wins over the last two seasons hasn’t met the high expectations we have for each of our programs at WT. This alone is the reason for my decision today.”
Hughes was hired in 2016 after tens years as the defensive coordinator at Colorado State University-Pueblo where he won a NCAA Division II National Championship with the ThunderWolves in 2014.
