After leading North Carolina A&T to a MEAC championship and an HBCU national championship, longtime head coach Rod Broadway will be retiring, according to reports.

The Greensboro News & Record reported that the university is expected to hold a news conference on Tuesday where Broadway, who coached the Aggies for the last seven seasons, will announce his retirement.


Under Broadway, North Carolina A&T, crafted a 57-22 record, winning a share of three MEAC championships, and two Celebration Bowl appearances.

Broadway and the Aggies finished the 2017 season 12-0, topping Grambling State in the Celebration Bowl to win the program’s second HBCU national title in three seasons.

Broadway, whose contract had expired at the end of the season, reportedly was considering a contract extension or moving away from the sport.

“It’s in a pretty good place,” Broadway said of the Aggies program. “We’ve taken some giants steps forward and still have a lot of room for improvement. That’s the goal, and we’re going to sit down and talk about all those things in January.”

In 15 seasons as head coach at stops at North Carolina Central, Grambling State and North Carolina A&T, Broadway went 122-45, winning five national championships and being named coach of the year in the MEAC and CIAA.
