Marlatt Moving On To Miami

By Dan Clasgens | Managing Editor

Andrew Marlatt is stepping down after seven seasons as Loveland's head coach.

Loveland head football coach Andrew Marlatt has resigned from his position to accept a job with Miami University as the RedHawks’ new special teams coach.

Marlatt, a Miami graduate, spent seven seasons atop the program after taking over in 2006 for Jim Vanatsky.

The Tigers finished 6-4 a year ago in their first season as a member of the newly formed Eastern Cincinnati Conference. It marked the school's second winning campaign in seven years. During his time at Loveland the Tigers went 33-37 and failed to make a post-season appearance.

“Though a tremendous opportunity for Coach Marlatt, it results in a huge loss for the entire Loveland community,” athletic director Jeff Zidron in a statement released by the school on Monday. “Coach Marlatt has become a fixture within Loveland far beyond Friday night football.”

Marlatt starred while playing at Miami (OH) under head coach Tim Rose. He earned All Mid-American Conference Honors in 1985, 1986, and 1987; All-American Honors in 1986 and 1987 and was the California Bowl MVP in 1986. He was signed as a free agent defensive lineman for the Dallas Cowboys and played for three years in the Arena Football League.

In addition to his time at Loveland, Marlatt also coached and taught at Sycamore (1997-05), Kings (1994-97), and Fairfield High School (1991-94).

“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.”

Loveland will begin their search for a new head coach immediately.
