Stony Brook head football coach Chuck Priore, has agreed to a one-year extension to his contract that will keep him with the Seawolves through 2018.

The team’s inaugural season in the Colonial Athletic Association has been riddled with injuries, but Priore has been able to guide the Seawolves to a five-win-season, including victories over No. 25 James Madision and in-state rival Albany.

“Coach Priore has built Stony Brook football into a formidable and well-respected program," said Interim Director of Athletics Donna Woodruff said. "Under his leadership, and behind an unwavering commitment to excellence, his teams are always well-prepared for competition”.  

The Long Beach native was one of two coaches to be named America Football Coaches Association Regional Co-Coach of the Year in 2012. Priore was the starting fullback for three seasons at the University of Albany, was named Big South Coach of the Year in 2009 and 2011.

"I appreciate the commitment the department of athletics and the entire university have shown in building a championship-level football program here at Stony Brook," Priore said. "My staff and I will continue to recruit quality student-athletes and look forward to continuing to build the brand of Seawolves football."
