GLASSBORO, N.J. (AP) — Jay Accorsi, the Rowan University football program’s all-time leader in victories, has announced his retirement as head football coach after 22 seasons.

The Division III school in south New Jersey announced the retirement of the longest-tenured head coach in the program’s history on Friday. There was no mention of who would replace him.

Accorsi posted a 143-78 record with seven shared or outright New Jersey Athletic Conference titles and seven appearances in the NCAA Division III Championships. The Profs advanced to the NCAA semifinals in 2004-05. His teams had a .500 or better record 17 times, including the past two seasons, and an overall record of 103-54 in NJAC games.

A native of Somers, Connecticut, and an alumnus of Nichols College in Massachusetts, Accorsi received NJAC Coach of the Year honors five times — 2014, 2013, 2005, 2004, and 2002 — and earned the Maxwell Football Club Tri-State Coach of the Year award in 2005.
