Kehres to step down as Mount Union head coach
Alliance, OH (Sports Network) - University of Mount Union head football coach Larry Kehres stepped down from his position on Wednesday, but will remain the school's athletics director.
Kehres, who has a career coaching record of 332-24-3, has led the school to 11 NCAA Division III national championships.
"The best part of the job was developing relationships with players and continuing those relationships following their graduations," Kehres said. "Coaching the Purple Raiders has been a tremendous experience for my family. We have shared many great experiences with our players, fellow coaches, trainers and their families. We plan to continue to enjoy working with Mount Union coaches and athletes."
Vince Kehres, who has spent 13 years on the Purple Raiders' coaching staff and the last eight as the defensive coordinator, will succeed his father as the program's next head coach.
