Wolford says he's "frustrated" Penguins did not make the playoffs

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Youngstown State football Coach Eric Wolford says he's "frustrated" the Penguins did not make the FCS playoffs this season.

"Its disappointing for everybody. The players and coaches, they worked hard," Wolford said in a telephone interview 21 Sports Director Dana Balash following the selection show.

"I met with the team, the seniors as a group and individually, and it was a difficult day,"  Wolford said.

Wolford is 24 -21 in his four seasons at Youngstown State. He has one year left on his original five year contract.

The Penguins were sitting 8-1 and suffered three straight losses thus sealing their fate.

"We know we have to finish first or second in the Missouri Valley Conference if we want to make the post-season," Wolford said.

North Dakota State and South Dakota State, who beat the Penguins the last two weeks at home, were the only representatives from the conference.

More reaction tonight at six on 21 Sports.
