ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Longtime University at Albany football coach Bob Ford is coaching his last season.

Ford announced Tuesday at the team's media day that he'll retire after the season. Hired in 1970, he's the longest tenured coach in college football. With 264 career victories, Ford ranks second among all active college coaches and first among active Division I coaches. He's been named Northeast Conference coach of the year four times and has led the Great Danes to six NEC titles.

At one time, Ford was the youngest head football coach in the nation when at 26 he took over the reins at St. Lawrence University in 1965. He will end his career as the nation's oldest. He turns 76 next month.
