Quincy Wilson named head football coach at the University of Fort Lauderdale

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Former Weir High School and WVU running back Quincy Wilson has earned his first head coaching opportunity. On Tuesday, Wilson was selected to lead the University of Fort Lauderdale football program. UTFL competes in the NCCAA (National Christian College Athletic Association).

“I’m very pleased and excited about the hiring of Quincy,” said UFTL Chancellor Henry Fernandez. “He brings experience at the NCAA level and has been successful there, as well as experience in the NFL. He is very energetic, a strong recruiter and a talented football coach. Wilson brings great passion to the UFTL family, and we are excited to see what he can do as he gets on campus.”

Wilson takes over the helm of the UFTL football program after spending the last four seasons as the Associate Head Coach, Running Backs Coach and the Director of Football Operations at West Virginia State University. He also coached at Glenville State and was the Assistant Director of Football Operations at WVU from 2012-2015.

Wilson was selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the seventh round of the NFL Draft. He played four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals.

After sharing the Kennedy Award as the state’s top high school player and leading Weir to the Class AA state title in 1998, Wilson went on to rush for 2,608 yards and 20 touchdowns at WVU.
