Clint Wiley has been named the football coach at Sterling.

Wiley, a longtime assistant coach at Villanova, will replace Jarod Claybourn, who coached the Silver Knights the previous four seasons.

"Clint is a good fit for us," Sterling athletic director Matt Sheehan said. "We're very excited about what he's going to bring to the football program and the entire athletic program."

Sheehan said Wiley would remain at Villanova through spring practice, then would be hired at Sterling as a full-time substitute with the aim of him becoming a full-time faculty member in September.

Wiley, who has been instrumental in Villanova's recruitment of several South Jersey players in recent years, was head coach at Oakcrest for one season in 2005.

Wiley was an assistant at Villanova from 1998-2004 as well as a second stint from 2006 to the present. He also has been an assistant coach at Urbana (Ohio), Boston University, and Western Connecticut State.
