Towson extends Ambrose through 2020
The Towson Tigers have extended head coaches Rob Ambrose contract until 2020. When Ambrose took over the Tigers he did not have much to work with and in 2010 the Tigers only had one win. The 2011 season was the turnaround season for the Tigers going 9 and 12.
I am surprised that Towson was able to lock Ambrose up for as long as they have. With the success that Ambrose has had I thought a big name school would have came in and signed him.
There is the hometown factor though, Ambrose is a Towson grad and grew up in Maryland. Ambrose’s whole family is involved with the Tigers so it makes sense that Ambrose would not want to move his young family around.
Keeping Ambrose is a huge deal for the Tigers who will look to continue their success after making it to the NCAA FCS Championship Game.
Here is a tweet from Tim Leonard about the extension.
