Kempe contract not renewed at Ursuline

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Ursuline football coach Larry Kempe was told his contract was not being renewed for next season.

"I'm extremely disappointed," said Kempe. He said he told school officials last year what could happen this season with the Irish's youth and inexperience.

"They asked me to resign and I said no," stated Kempe who was with the Irish for 15 seasons, including the first eight as the Irish defensive coordinator.

Under Kempe, the Irish were 1-9 this year. 

Under his leadership, they went to the playoffs four times, the regional final three times and the state semifinals once.

The school released a statement saying,  "Ursuline is extremely grateful to Coach Kempe for his long dedicated service to the football program. He always put his student athletes first."

A search committee will begin the process of selecting a new coach.
