One of the most successful coaching careers in the modern history of black college football has come to a close.
North Carolina A&T head coach Rod Broadway will not return next season, electing to retire, according to the school. His decision comes less than a month after he led the program to a perfect 12-0 record, and its second black college football national championship in three years.

A former FBS assistant under Steve Spurrier, Broadway won four black college football national titles, one at North Carolina Central, one at Grambling and two at North Carolina A&T.
