The Bowling Green Falcons have hired Scot Loeffler as their next head football coach. He replaces Mike Jinks and Carl Pelini.

Jinks was the first head coach fired this season in October. He was then replaced by Pelini on an interim basis.


This will be the first head coaching job for the former Boston College offensive coordinator. He spent the past three seasons at the school.

Prior to arriving at Boston College, he was the Virginia Tech Hokies offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2013-2015. He also was the Auburn Tigers offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2012.

Loeffler also served as the Temple Owls offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2011. He spent the 2009 and 2010 seasons as the Florida Gators quarterbacks coach.

In 2008, he served as the Detroit Lions quarterbacks coach. He worked as the Michigan Wolverines quarterbacks coach from 2002 through 2007.

He spent two seasons in 2000 and 2001 as the Central Michigan Chippewas quarterbacks coach. He began his coaching career with the Wolverines as a graduate assistant in 1998 and 1999.

Loeffler was also a student assistant with the Wolverines in 1996 and 1997.

Jinks went 7-24 in his tenure in two full years and part of a third season. Prior to Jinks, the team’s head coach was Dino Babers, who went 18-9 in two seasons before moving on to become the Syracuse Orange head coach.

Since the 2001 season, Loeffler is the team’s sixth head coach. Jinks was the only coach during that time, who had a losing record.
Urban Meyer went 17-6 in two seasons in 2001 and 2002. Gregg Brandon went 44-30 in six seasons from 2003 through 2008. Dave Clawson went 32-31 in five seasons from 2009 through 2013 before Babers took over.
