A tentative agreement on a new contract between the State System and the union representing coaches at the 14 state-owned universities was announced on October 27, 2016. The tentative agreement with the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties (APSCUF) now goes to the full membership for ratification. If ratified, it then would be considered for final approval by the State System's Board of Governors.
The agreement would run through June 30, 2019. Details of the tentative agreement will be released upon ratification.
The APSCUF coaches bargaining unit represents about 600 full- and part-time coaches at the State System universities.
