COLLEGEVILLE, Minn. (KNSI) Kurt Ramler was not chosen to become the new head football coach at St. John's University, but he is going back to work at his alma mater.
Johnnies head football coach Gary Fasching announced today that Ramler--a 1997 SJU graduate--will become the associate head coach and offensive coordinator for the St. Johns.
Ramler compiled a 22-38 record in six seasons as the head coach at Carleton College. He was named the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in 2008 after leading his team to a 7-3 record.
“Kurt is a young, energetic and innovative coach who will bring great enthusiasm and experience to our program,” Fasching said. “He is also a proven recruiter and will attract quality student-athletes to Saint John's. I am very excited to have him join our staff.”
Ramler--who was a finalist for the SJU coaching job along with Fasching and Eden Prairie High School coach Mike Grant--will begin his new duties on January 14th.
Damien Dumonceaux will replace Fasching as recruiting coordinator.
