CHADRON – Chadron State College announced today that it would not renew the contract of Bill O’Boyle. The contract is set to expire in June.

O’Boyle was relieved of his coaching duties in October after CSC administration self-reported potential violations to the NCAA in the football program.

Justin Haag, Media and Public Relations Coordinator for Chadron State College, says there have not been any results from the NCAA investigation.

“No, we have not received anything from the NCAA about the investigation”, said Haag. “We just can’t discuss that much either.”

Haag said he could not discuss personnel matters, but said the search for O’Boyle’s replacement will start immediately after the Holidays.

“We’re looking at getting the search going after the start of the year here and hopefully get someone hired right away and get a good person in place and hopefully continue the great tradition of excellence that has been built atChadronStateandChadronStatefootball.”

Finding the right person is very important to the college as they begin to move forward in the next chapter of Chadron State College football.

“Well I think the most important thing is to get a great person in that position who will continue the great tradition of excellence of Chadron State football and take it to new heights,” said Haag. “We want to get someone in place as soon as possible because we know there are some benefits of getting that done as far as recruiting issues go.ChadronStateknows we’re a little bit behind in that area right now so hopefully we can get somebody good in place and get some student athletes on campus for the next recruiting class.”

As for the assistants currently on staff Haag does not see any immediate changes.

“Well their status hasn’t changed at the college so they’re still employees of the college and will continue to be so.”

O’Boyle was 57-21 in seven seasons as the Eagles head coach and guided the program to three consecutive Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) titles. He was named the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year in 2007.
