Default Sparky Woods Asked To Return

For another year as VMI HC.

Quote:
Ending speculation that Woods could be out as VMI’s coach, new Keydets athletic director Dave Diles confirmed Monday that the school will honor the final year left on the veteran coach’s existing contract.
“We’re maintaining the commitment that we have to Coach Woods and we’re looking forward to continuing to work together to grow and advance VMI football,” Diles said via cellphone Monday night.
“There were a lot of positives when you dug down deeper past wins and losses. Sparky is a dignified ambassador of VMI, he cares deeply, and he’s worked hard to put the program in this position. And we’re looking forward to continue to grow and advance with his leadership.”
Woods, who turns 60 on Dec. 20, has done everything right but win games in his six years at VMI. There’s a lot of work to do in that area as the Keydets own a 15-52 record since he was named to replace Jim Reid in 2008.

"Sure, we'll waste another year for a nice guy"

Who in the hell would want to put forth any effort towards next season?

NCAA stats page shows he is 13-42 (.236) at VMI. The previous two coaches were a combined 22-79 (.218). So at least he's improved the program...even if it is barely noticeable. I don't think it really matters who coaches there though. Coaching jobs at VMI are some of the hardest in the nation.

He's averaged just over 2 wins a year in 5 years. And they want to bring him back for another. Talk about job security.

In hindsight, he was a much better choice than Brad Scott. His program did beat UT in the first SEC season, and he recruited some good players as well.

Yeah, after starting 0-6 in '92 the team revolted against Sparky and rallied around Taneyhill to win their last five games that included UT and Clemson. Sparky's team also lost to The Citadel in '90. Enough said.
