Shortly after the Youngstown State head football coaching position opened up, Vince Marrow spoke out about his potential interest in the job.
On a recruiting trip at Chaney High School in Youngstown, WKBN-27 asked Marrow if he’s interested in becoming the next head coach of his hometown football team.
“Names are thrown out. I’m from here, grew up here. My interest — until I talk to somebody, my interest is just, I’m watching as a fan. But I’m a big fan of (Youngstown State president) Coach Tressel and (athletic director) Ron Strollo — played against him in high school. I’m pretty sure they’re going to get a good guy.
“A lot of people from home have been calling me and saying ‘we want you to come back home.’ I’m just up here recruiting, just looking at kids and all of that. If my interest was there to be the head coach there — we have to see.”
Even though he admitted that he has not spoken to anyone at Youngstown State about filling the position, he was not shy about his intentions to become a head coach one day.
“I know whenever I take a head job, I’ll do a good job,” Marrow said. “Right now we’re building a good thing down at Kentucky, but in the short future — you just never know when’s the right time to do it. But I know I will be a head coach sometime.”
