Clements Surpasses Baldwin as KU Football's Coach with the Most Wins of All Time
Kutztown University drove 87 yards in 3:56 with the game on the line and got the go-ahead touchdown with 1:46 remaining to defeat East Stroudsburg, 24-20, Saturday at ESU's Eiler-Martin Stadium. With the victory, Jim Clements became the program's coach who has led the team in winning the most games, picking up his 62nd with the Maroon and Gold, moving past the late Hall of Famer George Baldwin. Baldwin went 61-71-3 in 14 seasons between 1973-83 and 1985-87. Clements, who is 62-24 with KU in his eighth season and 128-48 overall in 16 seasons, also has the highest winning percentage of any coach in program history at .721. KU has enjoyed winning seasons in each of Clements' seven previous seasons, winning PSAC East titles in 2016, 2019 and 2021, a PSAC championship in 2021 and qualifying for the NCAA Division II Championship tournament in 2018, 2019 and 2021. The Golden Bears return home next Saturday, Oct. 8, to face Bloomsburg on Pink Day at Andre Reed Stadium. Kickoff is at noon.
Hurricane Ian zipped through Florida and South Carolina leaving behind a trail of destruction. Fortunately, those days are long over for Ian, but Ian still exists in the form of these very cloudy, chilly, damp, rainy days, another of which we’ll have today with some periods of rain showers around. High temperatures only around 58 with a breezy northeast wind.
