    Tough call by Steve and kudos to Rob for a job well done in 13 years (I know the record was .500). Taking us to a place I'd never thought we get and that was Frisco. Unfortunately, the standards were set and we couldn't get close to reaching them after the 2013-14 season. Sure, there were a lot obstacles like Covid, some budgetary issues and a pretty weak donor base. But ultimately, the QB position wins or loses games. Other than Tom Flacco, since 2014 we started or played (off the top of my head), Tyrrell Pigrome, Scott Smith, Chris Ferguson, Nathan Kent, Morgan Mahalak, Connor Frazier, Ryan Stover, Ellis Knudson, Jeff Miller, Heath Dalgren and Vincent Amendola. I'm not going to take shots other than to say I wish him and his family good luck. The decision had to be made quickly either way and it was.

    It’s the right move and affirms in my mind that the new A.D. has autonomy to make these type of decisions without interference from the university president. I don’t take any joy in seeing someone lose their job, but I suspect Ambrose will not have much difficulty transitioning to his next job, whether it’s as a head coach or not. The bottom line is he wasn’t achieving the results necessary to keep his job. He deserves credit for the championship game run, but the results since the end of that season speak for themselves. I’m excited for the next chapter

    Ed, no one questions -- or even approximates -- your commitment to TU football. Believe it or not, those of us who have soured on Rob take no pleasure in the disappointing run since 2013 (two semi-successful Flacco years aside). But it's because we support the program that we applaud the change and the chance for better things to come. I look forward to seeing you next year in the stands.

    Ed, no argument here that you are the programs #1 fan. I think everyone who knows you (or knows of you) realizes all the effort you have put in over the past few decades. However, your post makes it seem like the rest of us aren’t worthy of having an opinion. We all want Towson football to succeed, that’s why we post here. A lot of us felt that RA’s release was overdue. And while we can’t all be super fans like you, that doesn’t mean that we don’t support the program.

    Well, you all got what you wanted. Rob brough this program to a place we had never been to before. The playoffs and the NC. I want to personnly thank Rob for bring life to our program. For those that say I am a Rob Supporter, I am. I am a supporter of the program period. I started with Gordy (1991 - when there was no fundrsiing at all for football) and was a super Gordy Supporter. I started the Quarterback Club to help Gordy and the program raise funds (funds the school by the way would not give the program). I don't want to go into all the things I have done to help this program, but I can tell you it is more than any of you all have done combined. When Gordy was let go, I became a Rob Supporter. I will be a Super Supporter of whoever the next coach is too. For me it's not about who the coach is, its about the program. I get behind whoever the coach is and give my TOTAL suppoprt to him. I have been involved for 31 years (as a volunteer, never paid for anything I do). My wife and I have been to every game home and away for 31 years (Minus the Eastern Washington game in 2013 due to canceld flight and snow storms). Can any of you people who are so negative about this program say that! I hope that the next coach gets all the support from the Admin he needs for US to be successful. I know that I will be a big supporter of whoever it is, because thats what I do, SUPPORT THIS PROGRAM with my heart and soul. So whoever the next coach is, I am your biggest supporter.

    What “we” wanted (those of us who advocated for a change) was a reset; a coach who can hopefully make us a consistent playoff team, which necessarily means a coach who can do a better job bringing in quality QB’s and who’s ceiling isn’t 6-5 or maybe, in a good year, 7-4. Surely no one believes that the 10 or so of us who post here regularly had even the slightest role in convincing the new A.D. to make this decision. Are there people who post here (including me) who have been negative about the job Ambrose has been doing? Of course, and with good cause, I would say, given his record from 2014-2022. Does this diminish the storybook championship game run? Of course not, but there comes a point where past accomplishments begin to fade in the rear view mirror and current and future results become the relevant consideration. More than 1 thing can be true at the same time-we can support the program (and you’re right, we all take a backseat to you in that regard) and still want new leadership and a new vision to hopefully return the program to relevance, as opposed to the rut we’ve been in since Frisco.

    I think most of us that are here love this program. Some don't and that's fine. FCS football is not for everyone. Tailgating is not for everyone. Steve Eigenbrot wasn't brought in just to replace Tim Leonard. He was going to come in and change things that needed changing or at least attempt. He also wasn't brought in just to hire a women's basketball and field hockey coach. Personally, I had a hard time watching this team over the years, on both sides of the ball. In the last four games, the defense played well, but the offense was like watching paint dry and I love football (FCS or FBS). If I had thought it was dull to cover and I can only imagine what the casual fans thought. They want to be entertained, not just win football games against bad-to-mediocre opponents. We were really good in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2018. That's four seasons in 13+ years. We were mediocre-to-bad the rest of the way. Mediocrity is 76-76. In years past, that was good enough. If you want to get to the next level, whatever that may be, whether it's top of the FCS or moving on to Gof5, then the move had to be made. Now, that hire will be the most important one since Rob was brought in. Even more than the Skerry hire because our program was dormant when he took over.

    Nothing bad to say about Rob. Appreciate all that he’s done but this was the right move for the program. I hope he lands on his feet.

    Thanks for asking the question! It’s time for a new coach. I respect rob and think he gave it his all here as the coach but we need to strive for more. I’d rather swing and miss on a new coach rather then settle for mediocrity.

    So you want him to say they suck? Every Coach doing these shows will always hype their opponents. You don’t want to give bulletin board material.

    This a solid Coppin team. They have some guys who can score. Will need a team effort and hopefully 11 out there

    I have no problem with being a stepping stone. That would mean someone made us very successful before moving on, which would make us an attractive landing spot for the next coach. Wash, rinse, repeat. What programs, other than a select few, aren’t stepping stones?🤔

    Almost without exception, coaches are hired to be fired. Even legendary ones. The trajectory of the program has been heading downward for years. 7-win ceiling; 1 playoff appearance, ending in an unceremonious drubbing at the hands of Duquesne; over reliance on transfers; a revolving door of mostly mediocre QB play; an often boring style of play; attendance declining every game this season after the home opener. These aren’t low blows, just the facts

    Exactly. Being one of the more vocal on here, the only chance we had at change was not making the playoffs this year. Wish we had enough money to cut him loose last year. Band aid transfers, going year to year with a lame duck coach is no way to build a program. I loved Robs energy when he was first hired. It was contagious around campus. We had a few really good players for a stretch and an all world one. Made the championship but after that it was all down hill. He got stale, as do many coaches just hanging around. Got to give him and the players credit for continuing to fight at the end. I know first hand that everyone including PK himself gave up that last year (assuming he tried at all). A new voice was needed and hopefully we have someone good coming in soon, who can take us where all tiger fans want to be.

    Well said and you point out the elephant in the room, which was his lackluster record of bringing in/developing quality QB’s. His accomplishments are greatly appreciated and best wishes to him going forward

    Congratulations ladies. Now it’s time to make some tournament noise. I’ve been following volleyball very closely this year and this team fights.

    Serial winners. in their biggest match of the year, Towson came through with a monstrous attacking performance, and delivered a 3-0 no-doubter to head back to the big show yet again. This team was a clear class above the rest of the CAA, and assuming they return most of their players, they could very well be just as dominant next year. Moving on to the NCAA tournament, there has been a big rule change that will greatly impact our placement. The committee now seeds 32 teams instead of 16, and then sends the bottom 32 to locations that they are close to. In the past, only the top 16 teams were seeded, so we were never even in contention for a seed. This is why we were always sent somewhere nearby, and it mostly benefitted us because the conferences/teams in our area are not as strong as those in the midwest and west. Now, we could get a seed, but it would be a low one. This would mean we would be sent to our first weekend location based on competitive placement and NOT proximity. As a result, the whole country is open, and we would be destined to play one of the best teams in the country in the second round. It'll be a big challenge, but that's what it takes to be a top program. Bring it on, I say.

    Listening to RA praise Hampton in his Q&A with Spiro, you would think they were leading the league. Typical salesmanship.

    Time to come support these players no matter if you HATE Rob Ambrose or not. (Yes, I am talking to you TuTigers2012). Theses men did not give up when we were down, and now it's time for you all to come support them. They have won 3 in a row and looking to make it 4. Go Tigers

    Ok appreciate the support for Gordy because he is a great guy and was a solid coach but I think he’s happy doing color for games and living in New Jersey. Why would you want the headache of coaching and recruiting in your 70s in the NIL era? I think Gordy would be very happy if one of his former players like Bushrod got the job.
