KUTZTOWN, Pa. - Drew Folmar has been named the new head football coach at Kutztown University.
Folmar, a native of Chambersburg, has been KU's offensive coordinator and coached its quarterbacks since 2009. During that time, KU has tallied a record of 28-8, the winningest three-year period in the program's history.
"Any time you try to hire a head coach you always want to try to hire one who's the right fit," said KU Director of Athletics Greg Bamberger in a statement. "When we did this seven years ago, we hired Raymond Monica and he was the right fit. We did the same thing this time.
"Drew, without a doubt, is that person. He's a Southeast Pennsylvania guy and was an elite player in the PSAC. Drew is well known in the recruiting area we hit, east of the Susquehanna River. In PSAC football, Drew Folmar is a household name."
He replaces Raymond Monica, who resigned on December 13 to accept the head coaching position at Arkansas Tech. "I'm looking forward to the next chapter in Kutztown football, as we try to take this program to the next level," noted Folmar, 34, in a statement. "Coach Monica did a great job of putting Kutztown on the map and we're going to keep the program moving in a positive direction."
Folmar was a record-breaking quarterback at Millersville University from 1997-2000 and also played baseball for the Marauders. He also coached at Millersville, as well.
