Maumee hires football coach


Maumee High School plans to hire former Clyde coach Marc Gibson as its new football coach.

A recommendation will be made to hire Gibson at the district's board of education meeting on Monday.

Gibson coached at Clyde for the last eight years where he compiled a 70-22 record. He led the Fliers to six Sandusky Bay Conference championships and four playoff appearances.

Prior to Clyde, Gibson was the head coach at Sidney (2001-2004) and Brookville (1997-2000).

Gibson replaces John Boles, who stepped down in December. Boles finished with a record of 86-73 in 15 seasons and led the Panthers to six playoff appearances. Boles also coached at Northwood and Genoa.

Gibson has been a football coach for 21 years and a head coach for 16 seasons. As a head coach, he has an overall record of 111-60. His teams have won seven conference championships and have made six the playoffs appearances.

Maumee went 6-4 last fall.

Gibson also will fill a social studies teaching position at Gateway Middle School.
