Ron Ernst

Ripon College head football coach Ron Ernst has received many awards and accolades during his 21 seasons at the helm of the Red Hawks.

He added to his hardware this week, as he was named the 2010 Wisconsin Private College Coach of the Year, which is given out by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association (WFCA).

This is the third time in his career that Ernst has received the award.

Ernst led the Red Hawks to a 7-3 record during the 2010 season, while finishing tied for second in the Midwest Conference with a 6-3 conference record. That marks the fifth consecutive season Ripon has won at least seven games, which is the first time that has happened in program history.
