January 13th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

Frostburg State University has named Eric Wagoner as the 14th head coach in school history, according to a release from Frostburg State Athletics. Bobcats Director of Athletics Troy Dell announced the move on Thursday afternoon. A press conference will be scheduled at a later date.

"I am extremely excited and humbled to be the next head football coach at Frostburg State University,” said Wagoner. “Frostburg State University is a top academic and athletic institution, and the football program has a long and rich history. I look forward to upholding and continuing this legacy and cannot wait to get to work."

Wagoner succeeds DeLane Fitzgerald as head coach of the Bobcats, becoming their second coach at the Division II level after Fitzgerald was announced as the head coach at Division I Southern Utah on Dec. 14.

Wagoner has 15 years of coaching experience and spent the past two seasons as the defensive coordinator under Fitzgerald after being hired March 17, 2020, to succeed John Kelling, who Fitzgerald hired to be his defensive coordinator at Southern Utah.
