Marietta athletic director Larry Hiser announced the resignation of head football coach Jeff Filkovski on Nov. 14.

Marietta recently completed its first winless season since 1991, going 0-10.

“Marietta College would like to thank Coach Filkovski for his dedication to Pioneer football over the past five years,” Hiser said. “We appreciate the work he did building a program that contributed to many campus initiatives. We wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Filkovski posted a record of 10-40 in five years at the helm of the Marietta program. He led the Pioneers to an upset of then-No. 7 Otterbein, 25-22, on a last second touchdown pass in 2009.

Prior to this fall, 18 of Filkovski’s players earned All-Ohio Athletic Conference honors including first team recognition for Lamar Hunter (2009) and Adam Tate (2010). In addition, nine Pioneers earned Academic All-OAC accolades under Filkovski’s tutelage.

Filkovski came to Marietta after serving as the offensive coordinator at Heidelberg where he was named the OAC Co-Assistant Coach of the Year in 2007. Prior to Heidelberg, Filkovski was the offensive coordinator for the Cologne Centurions of NFL Europe.

Filkovski played collegiately at Allegheny. The Gators’ starting quarterback, Filkovski led Allegheny to a 13-0-1 record and the Division III national championship in 1990.

A national search will begin immediately for Marietta’s next head football coach. Until that person is named, five-year veteran coach Drew Mohr will serve as interim head football coach.
