|ROB SKARICICH- Defensive Coordinator|
Skaricich enters his 11th year as defensive coordinator for the Grove City
College football team and his 17th year overall with the College.
Last season, Grove City led the Presidents' Athletic Conference in total defense and fewest first downs allowed, ranking nationally in the top 25 in both of those categories.
The Wolverines allowed just 283 yards per game, the fewest for a Grove City defense in 14 years.
In addition, junior cornerback Chris Gibbs became the first Grove City junior to be named a CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-American.
Under his guidance, two Grove City defensive backs have represented the US in the Aztec Bowl. Brock McCullough played in the 2000 Aztec Bowl while saftey Aaron Magro played in the 2005 edition of the game.
A native of Wickliffe, Ohio, Skaricich spent four seasons at Marietta before joining the Grove City staff.
Skaricich played cornerback at Hiram College, graduating in 1991. He earned his master's degree from Cleveland State in 1993.

In 2008, he guided Grove City to its first-ever NCAA Championship Tournament berth. The 2011 Wolverines captured the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament title.
