Whittier College Names New Football Coach
After a national search, Greg Carlson has been named head football coach at Whittier College.
Carlson brings extensive Division III coaching experience to Whittier. He served as head football coach at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana, considered a Division III powerhouse, for 18 years. Under Carlson’s leadership, Wabash had a 112-57-2 record and won conference championships in 1991, 1992, 1994 and 1998.
Carlson also has coaching experience at the Division II and Division I-A levels. He comes to Whittier from Ball State University, where he was recruiting coordinator and running back coach, and earlier in his career he was defensive coordinator at the University of Evansville.
“I couldn’t be more pleased,” said Wendell Jack, director of athletics at Whittier. “Greg’s proven leadership ability, character building and recruitment skills coupled with his integrity and experience in small-college athletics make him an ideal fit for Whittier,” he said.
Located 18 miles east of Los Angeles, Whittier College is an independent, four-year college offering traditional liberal arts majors and strong pre-professional programs taught in the context of the liberal arts. Whittier Law School, which is accredited by the American Bar Association and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools, is located on a separate campus in Costa Mesa.
