Robert Morris University has extended the coaching contract of football coach Joe Walton through the 2013 season and announced that Walton will step down as the Colonials' coach after that year.

The announcement was made by Robert Morris director of athletics Craig Coleman who said of Walton, "He is synonymous with RMU football, and it will be meaningful for all of us at the university when he reaches the 20-year milestone."

Walton is the only head coach the Colonials football team has had. He started the program and in 18 seasons has compiled a 103-73-1 record. Last year, he guided the Colonials to their first Northeast Conference regular-season title in 10 years and sixth overall.

A native of Beaver Falls, Walton played end at Pitt and in the National Football League. He coached in NFL for 35 years and was the New York Jets head coach 1983-89.
