Gannon Golden Knights head football coach Brad Rzyczycki has stepped down. Instead of being the team’s leader on the football field, he has moved into a permanent position in the Athletic Department.

His position in the Athletic Department is not known at this time. Besides being the head football coach, he was also the school’s defensive coordinator.

“I would like to thank Gannon University for having me as the head football coach over the last eight years,” Rzyczycki said. “I am proud to have worked for such a prestigious university, and I appreciate the unbelievable opportunity I was given during my time here. I would like to personally thank all the members of the Gannon University community for their mentoring and development, and for making my time as the head football coach such a great experience.
 
“I’m excited to continue serving the university and our student-athletes in my new role.”

A national search has begun to find his replacement.

Rzyczycki had 38 wins during his eight-year tenure. His resignation comes following just a 2-9 season.

The Golden Knights ended the season on a seven-game losing streak. Their last win on the season came against the Clarion Golden Eagles in a 51-35 win on Sept. 28.

Rzyczycki had the second-longest tenure in program history. He tied Bill Elias’ tenure.

The 38 wins are the second-most in modern history, according to the school. He averaged the most wins per season in the program’s modern era.

“As we continue to strengthen our commitment to excellence and providing a transformative experience for our student-athletes, we are excited to welcome Brad to our team of very talented athletic administrators,” Gannon Director of Athletics Lisa Goddard McGuirk said. “He is committed to the mission, vision and the overall success of our department and the student-athletes that we serve.

“Brad is a leader who possesses many talents and attributes that will continue to best serve the University and our department as a whole.”
