LHS football coach accepts division one college position
Posted Monday, February 25, 2013
The Loveland City School District has announced that Loveland High School (LHS) Varsity Football Coach Andrew Marlatt has accepted the position of special team coordinator at Miami University – a division one college football program – effective immediately.
“It is with mixed emotions that we make this announcement,” said Jeff Zidron, Loveland athletic director. “Though a tremendous opportunity for Coach Marlatt, it results in a huge loss for the entire Loveland community. Coach Marlatt has become a fixture within Loveland far beyond Friday night football. He has been a mentor both on the playing field and in the classroom during the past seven years. We wish Coach Marlatt and his family the best of luck at Miami with his new responsibilities. He will always be a Tiger.”
"I have enjoyed my seven years as the head football coach at LHS,” said Marlatt. “We have built the program into a consistent winner. I am very proud of the accomplishments we have made including installing new field turf and building a new state-of-the-art 6,000 square foot weight room. Most of all, I will cherish the memories of all the players and coaches who I worked with to build our program. I appreciate the support the administration has given me and wish Loveland High School football the best next season. The new head coach will be inheriting a wonderful program with top-notch facilities and an outstanding core group of talented athletes."
The search process for a new head coach is underway.
