Andrew Marlatt, head coach at Loveland High School for the past seven seasons and a standout defensive player for Miami University in the 1980s, begins his first season as the RedHawk football staff’s special teams co-coordinator and safeties coach.

Marlatt, a 1988 Miami graduate, will be the fifth alumnus to serve on the RedHawks’ full-time staff. He joins Miami alums Don Treadwell, Mike Bath, Ron Carpenter and Jay Peterson on the 2013 coaching staff.

Over the last seven years, Marlatt has built the Loveland Tigers football program into a consistent winner. Loveland finished in the top half of the FAVC/ECC the past four years and has competed successfully against perennial Cincinnati power house programs Winton Woods, Turpin, Anderson, Lebanon and Kings. Prior to his seven years as head coach at Loveland, Marlatt served in various roles at Sycamore High, Kings High and Fairfield High. From 2001-05, Marlatt served as Director of Football Operations for the Anthony Munoz Youth Football Academy in Cincinnati.

Prior to his coaching career, Marlatt was a very successful player. From 1984 through 1987, Marlatt was one of Miami’s most outstanding defensive players. As a defensive tackle, he earned All-MAC honors three times, including first-team honors as both a junior and a senior. His 52 career tackles for loss is still tied for fifth on Miami’s all-time list. Miami won the MAC title in 1986 and was conference runner-up in both 1985 and ‘87. Marlatt received Miami’s Keith Swailes Award in 1986, emblematic of his enthusiasm, loyalty, intensity and football knowledge. At the 1986 California Bowl, he was named Defensive Player of the Game.

In April 1988, Marlatt signed as a free agent for Coach Tom Landry’s Dallas Cowboys and played in three pre-season games that fall. Marlatt later played in the Arena Football League and was a member of the Washington Commandos (1990), the Columbus Thunderbolts (1991) and the Cleveland Thunderbolts (1992).

Marlatt’s family includes his wife, Karen, and three daughters, Lauren, Sarah and Grace.
