William Charles Wolford (born May 18, 1964 in Louisville, Kentucky) is a former American football offensive lineman in the National Football League for the Buffalo Bills, the Indianapolis Colts, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Wolford attended St. Xavier High School in Louisville, and played college football at Vanderbilt University. He was the Bills' first-round pick in the 1986 NFL Draft, and played for them from 1986–1992, including AFC championships (and Super Bowl losses) in his last three years in Buffalo. Wolford signed as a free agent with the Colts in 1993, and finally joined the Steelers from 1996-98. He was named to the AFC Pro Bowl roster in 1990, 1992, and 1995.

In 2002, he became the majority owner/operator of the Arena Football 2 Louisville Fire.

Wolford took over color analyst duties for the world champion Colts in the 2007 season, working alongside longtime Colts voice Bob Lamey. He replaces Ted Marchibroda, who remains on the crew in another role. Wolford was also co-host of The Bob and Will Show, working alongside Bob Valvano on WQKC, an all-sports station in Louisville, until that station changed formats in November 2008.

In 2013, Wolford became the head football coach at his alma mater of St. Xavier High, replacing the retiring Mike Glaser.[1] He remains in this post as of the 2014 season.[2]
