It’s time to hit the reset button for the Blazers football team.
In 2018, the Blazers capped off an undefeated 15-0 season by winning the NCAA Division II Football National Championship. The Blazers defeated Ferris State 49-47 to win their fourth title.
VSU hired former Blazer Gary Goff as football coach No. 10 in program history on Jan. 29.
Goff coached the last eight seasons at Tiffin University in Ohio. Goff replaces former VSU head coach Kerwin Bell, who took the offensive coordinator position at the University of South Florida.
Bell began coaching the Blazers in 2016.
