CHADRON, Neb. — Chadron State announced Thursday that the employment contract of football coach Bill O'Boyle, which expires in June 2012, will not be renewed.
O'Boyle compiled a 57-21 record in seven years as the head coach. He helped guide the Eagles to three consecutive Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference titles from 2006 to 2008 and he was the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year in 2007, for which he received a $50,000 cash award to support civic and charitable activities, as well as a $20,000 scholarship donation to the school's alumni association.
O'Boyle was relieved of his coaching duties in October after the CSC administration self-reported concerns to the NCAA that violations may have occurred within the football program.
A search for O'Boyle's replacement will begin after the holidays.
Chadron State ended the 2011 season with a 6-5 record and a third-place finish in the RMAC.
