Head Coach Marcus Wattley enters his first season as head football coach for the Fighting Irish. Marcus is joined by a veteran coaching staff, with a few new faces. Prior to being named head coach, Marcus spent the last 10 years as an assistant coach, the defensive coordinator and the linebackers coach for the Fighting Irish.
Coach Wattley graduated from Copley High School in 2000. He was a three-year varsity letterman for the Indians, where he was a first team All Ohio linebacker in 1999 as a senior. Coach Wattley attended the University of Akron after high school. After playing football for a year, Wattley decided to join Coach Boarman on staff at Copley. When Coach Boarman took over as the Head Coach at St. Vincent-St. Mary in 2007, Wattley became his linebackers coach and then took over as the defensive coordinator in 2012.
Coach Wattley said , “I am extremely humbled and honored to be taking over the program after 10 years under my father figure and role model, Coach Dan Boarman. I have been entrusted as a “care taker” of one of the oldest and most prominent football programs in the State of Ohio. I look very much forward to the challenge, as I have high expectations. One thing I can tell you is our kids work extremely hard and understand the road will be tough. However, every time they play, they represent the character and dignity of the Fighting Irish. That is what we expect every time. I would like to thank you all for all you do to support our program and our school. Myself, my coaches, our trainers and managers, and my players do sincerely appreciate it."
In Coach Wattley's second season, the Irish finished 10-4, qualifying for the OHSAA playoffs for the ninth straight season and won their 4th regional championship in six years. The Irish lost to Tri-Valley in the Division III State Semi-Finals.
