Marquette has hired Yale offensive coordinator Andrew Stimmel as their next head coach. Stimmel’s hiring comes after Joe Amplo left Marquette to take the head coaching position at Navy. 

Stimmel comes to Marquette after spending the past three seasons as the offensive coordinator at Yale, helping to take the Bulldogs to two straight championship weekend appearances (2018,2019). Stimmel helped Yale win their first NCAA era championship in2018.

Prior to his time at Yale, Stimmel was an assistant at Marquette during the 2016 season. He was also an assistant at Yale for two seasons prior to coming to Marquette as well. Stimmel started his coaching career as an assistant at Ohio State, his alma mater.

He was also the head coach at DII Grover City (Pa.) from 2012-2-13 where he led them to a 17-7 record during his time at the helm. 

Stimmel comes in to his first DI head coaching job with plenty of high-level experience. He was a leading candidate for most of the search and Marquette started zeroing in on him over the past few weeks as one of their finalist. 

He comes into a program that is heading into their eight year as a program and has already had a lot of success, winning the Big East tournament in 2016 and 2017.

This past season the Golden Eagles went 6-8, missing the Big East tournament. Stimmel has a lot to build on at Marquette and things are certainly setup for success in Milwaukee.
