The Rod Broadway Era has officially come to a close in Greensboro, North Carolina. Earlier today, Coach Broadway and North Carolina A&T Athletic Director, Earl M. Hinton III appeared at a press conference to announce Broadway’s retirement.
North Carolina A&T showed tremendous growth under the direction of Coach Broadway. The Aggies posted a 59-22 record during Broadway’s seven seasons as head coach. In fact, Broadway’s winning percentage (.738) is the highest winning percentage in North Carolina A&T history.
In his final season, Broadway led the Aggies to an undefeated season, MEAC Championship, and a National HBCU Championship title. In 15 seasons as a head coach Broadway went 127-45, winning 4 national HBCU championships. While reflecting on his tenure as the Aggies head coach Broadway said:
“I am grateful to this great and historic university, North Carolina A&T State, for the opportunity to be its head football coach for seven years,” said Broadway. “I am grateful to two men I hold in high esteem, chancellor Martin and athletics director Earl Hilton, for believing in me and the direction I wanted to take this program. I am grateful to the players, they have made this a wonderful experience for me and my family.”
Defensive Coordinator, Sam Washington will be taking over as Coach Broadway’s successor.
