Head Football Coach
Southern Conference titles:
2003, 2007, 2010, 2012 and 2017!
The story of Mike Ayers as head coach at Wofford began in 1988.
Ayers’ impact on the Terriers was immediate. He transformed a 1-10 Wofford team into a .500 squad in 1988 and then led the Terriers to an NCAA Division II playoff berth in 1990.
Now, in his 30th season, Ayers is the head coach of a Terrier team that, over the last decade, has been the epitome of success within the Southern Conference with a total of 5 Southern Conference titles.
Ayers played prep football at Glen Este High School and earned a football scholarship to Georgetown College (Ky.), where he was a three-time All-District 24 selection at linebacker while also starting at offensive tackle.
He earned all-district honors as a catcher on the baseball team in addition to competing in gymnastics and wrestling.
A black belt in karate and an accomplished fisherman and sketch artist, Ayers has a variety of off-field interests and has always been involved in charitable events. He is a much sought-after speaker for athletic groups and charitable events.
He completed his B.A. degree in 1974 and received his M.A. degree from Georgetown as well in 1976. He has been inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame at both Glen Este and Georgetown.
Michael Ayers was born in 1948 in Kentucky. Ayers and his wife, Julie, were married in 1976. They have two daughters and a son.
