Winston-Salem State University football’s, Steed Lobotzke, was named the new offensive coordinator at the University of Richmond this afternoon.
University of Richmond head football coach Danny Rocco announced that former Winston-Salem State and Wake Forest offensive coordinator Steed Lobotzke has been hired as Spider football’s offensive coordinator Friday afternoon.
“Coach Lobotzke is a great coach and was always prepared,” said WSSU head coach Kienus Boulware. “He is very professional person that was always fair to the players. He has the talent to coach successfully on any level of football”, added Boulware.
Richmond Spiders fell to the No. 6 Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, 36-15, in the second round of the FCS Playoffs.
Lobotzke, WSSU’s offensive coordinator, was at the helm of the WSSU offense in 2014 that led the CIAA in scoring at 35.7 points per game, and spearheaded the Ram offense that recorded eight-straight 400-plus yard games. WSSU made it to the CIAA Championship game, but were upset, 21-17 by Virginia State. Winston-Salem State ended the year with a 9-2 overall record, and No. 24 national ranking in the final American Football Coaches Association poll.
“We will look to find his replacement as soon as possible, and we wish him the best of luck at Richmond,” Boulware said.
