Northview seeks coach after failing to renew Moldawsky's contract

Northview is looking for a new football coach after Marek Moldawsky’s contract was not renewed Friday.

Moldawsky had an 8-22 record in three seasons, including a 3-18 mark in the Northern Lakes League.

In each of his first two seasons, Northview was 3-7 overall and 1-6 in the NLL. This past season the Wildcats finished 2-8, 1-6.

Northview athletic director Chris Irwin said the school elected to “go in a different direction.”

Moldawsky said he anticipated a long-term rebuilding process when he took over in 2011. He said there were 52 players in the program, and he increased that number to 102, including 43 freshmen, last season.

“I had a great time coaching at Northview,” Moldawsky said. “It was a great experience, and I learned a lot. The kids were great, and I feel we moved the program forward.”

Moldawsky’s teams struggled against rival Southview, going 0-3 and losing by a combined score of 137-6.

Moldawsky, a 1985 Maumee graduate, put in 15 seasons as an assistant before becoming a head coach. He was an assistant at the former Macomber High School. Before Northview he was an assistant at St. John’s Jesuit for five seasons.

Moldawsky took over for Erik Keller, who resigned after 15 seasons and a 63-88 overall record.

Northview has won just two league titles in 53 seasons, one in the NLL and one in the former Great Lakes League.
