The Cleveland State has removed the interim tag from Andy German and named him the Vikings’ next head coach. This hire comes after Dylan Sheridan left Cleveland State for an assistant job at Ohio State earlier this summer.
German has been the Vikings’ top assistant for the past four seasons, and was named the interim head coach last month following Dylan Sheridan’s exit from the program.
German has been apart of the Vikings growth as a program since its inception. As the defensive coordinator, German’s defenses have consistently finished inside the top 20 across DI each year at Cleveland State.
Prior to his arrival in Cleveland, German served as an assistant at Villanova, his alma mater, from 2011-14. He served as the head coach at Saint Joseph’s Prep in Philadelphia during the 2015 season.
The Pennsylvania native started his coaching career at Susquehanna and played in college at Alfred State for two seasons before finishing his career at Villanova.
German takes over a Cleveland State program that is heading into its fifth season as a program. Last season they had their most successful season in program history, going 8-7 overall.
