Four years ago, when the Towson football team won just one game all season and went 0-8 in the Colonial Athletic Association, the University would have traded anything for a few more wins. Now that they have finished a season with 13 wins and a trip to the FCS National Championship game, they are realizing the financial cost of picking up those wins.

Towson Head Coach Rob Ambrose said after the Football Championship Subdivision Championship game loss that his team was on its way to being national power, but “[they’re] not there yet.” The University wants Ambrose to stick around to see that happen, so much so that it offered him a seven-year extension that extends to 2020. Ambrose accepted that deal Wednesday, as it was announced by Athletic Director Tim Leonard via Twitter.
