Barlow led the Trojans to an undefeated regular season (10-0) record, the 2017 Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) championship title, and a NCAA Playoff appearance in his second season after taking over the program and going (9-2, 5-2 CIAA) in 2016. In addition, the VSU Football Team was named the Dr. Cavils 2017 HBCU Mid-Major Division II National Champion. Before joining VSU, Barlow coached at several schools including his alma mater, Alabama State University, where he was the quarterback coach from 2005-2006 and the head coach from 2007-2014.

"What a great day!" Barlow said. "Thanks to Dr. Abdullah, Mr. Harris and our Director of Athletics Mrs. Peggy Davis! This new contract is a product of hard work and hard work by our assistant coaches. I'm so honored to have a great staff. This is a product of a great group of young men who brought into our Discipline, Attitude, Sacrifice, Habits, and Heart (DASHH) philosophy. I'm excited to be the head football coach at Virginia State University, and I look forward to being here a long time! Go Trojans!"

Reggie Barlow was introduced as VSU's new football coach on May 5, 2016, following a brief search after previous head coach Byron Thweatt accepted a linebacker's coaching position at FCS James Madison University.

"I couldn't be more proud to work with Reggie Barlow as we build a nationally competitive football program representing VSU and our community across the country," Davis said. "In my view, the turnaround he led has been nothing short of phenomenal."
