For the first time in two decades, Marian has a new head football coach. Marian grad and former defensive coordinator Michael Davidson was promoted to the position when Reggie Glon stepped down in January.

In Glon's final season, the Knights finished 9-5, and won a sectional and regional championship despite being decimated by injuries.

While Glon is no longer the head coach, he is still on staff as an assistant. That could make for an awkward transition between regimes, but Davidson said he is glad to still have his mentor around.

"It's special," Davidson said. "Marian Knight football has been special to me for as long as I can remember, playing here, this is my second go-around coaching here. Reggie was like a second father to me, both as a high school player and in my young coaching career. I've been able to lean on him over the past seven or eight months, trying to figure things out, and having him out here has been a true blessing. Being head coach at Marian is something special that I truly cherish."

Davidson will make his head coaching debut Friday, August 17th at home against Clay. Kickoff is set for 7pm.
