Sonny Wolfe, who took over from Chuck McMann as the McGill football program’s head coach in April of 2007, has stepped down from his post.
Wolfe announced the decision to his team after practice on Oct. 11. Earl Zukerman, Communications and Publications Officer for the Department of Athletics at McGill, broke the news to the public in a press release.
“The chances of making the playoffs are slim so it’s time to start thinking of next year,” Wolfe said, in an interview with Zukerman.
Wolfe had planned to step down next year, leaving the position open for the apparent heir-in-waiting—defensive coordinator Clint Uttley, who’s been with the Redmen for four years.
Wolfe will stay with the team in some capacity until his contract ends in April.
With three games remaining in the season, the next of which is this Saturday, Uttley will find himself in the hot seat sooner than anticipated.
