Stony Brook extends football coach Chuck Priore’s contract

On the heels of a second-straight shared Big South Conference football championship, Stony Brook University has extended  head coach Chuck Priore’s contract through 2016, the athletics department announced today.

“I appreciate the trust and confidence that President Stanley and Jim Fiore have shown in me as the leader of the program,” Priore said in the press release. “I am excited about the future of our program and humbled by the opportunity to lead such a special group of coaches and student-athletes at one of the premier academic institutions in the country.”

Priore just completed his fifth season with the Seawolves. He has a 28-27 overall record with Stony Brook. Under Priore, the Seawolves have gone 18-6 at home.

Athletic director Jim Fiore tweeted a link to the release accompanied by the comment: “Well earned and much deserved. We are thrilled to have him @ SBU!”

Over the past two season, the Seawolves have gone 10-2 and shared two championships.

Stony Brook faced its first Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) opponent in South Florida last season, and will travel to face University of Texas at El Paso and Buffalo in 2011. Future schedules include Army, Boston College and Cincinnati.
