At Marquette, we take great pride in the winning tradition of our athletic teams. This includes our football program, which has a winning tradition dating back to 1927. Through the 2015 season, the Explorers have advanced to the IHSA State Playoffs nine of the last ten years.
Through the 2015 season, Marquette has 462 career victories, 22 playoff appearances and nine undefeated seasons. MCHS football has made appearances in the IHSA Elite Eight (Quarterfinals) and Final Four (Semi-Finals), a second place finish in the State Championship. Two longtime football coaches are Illinois Football Coaches Hall of Fame Inductees, Joe Stephan and John Rogers, while Coach Ron Holtman is a Missouri Sports Hall of Fame Inductee. Remarkably, 75% of the 89 Marquette football teams has been coached by only five Head Coaches: Joe Stephan, Ron Holtman, John Rodgers, John Waters and Mike Slaughter.
Scores of Marquette players have played college football including Divison 1 players John "Jack" Fallon (Notre Dame), Harold Thomeczek (Missouri), Chuck Crumbacher (Missouri), John Dooling (Vanderbilt), Craig Hentrich (Notre Dame), Tom Roth (SIU-Carbondale), Dan McConnell (Notre Dame), David Fitzgerald (Notre Dame), Michael Cook (SEMO) and Michael Ford (SEMO). Tom Roth, Class of 1986 and Craig Hentrich, Class of 1989 played professionally in the National Football League (NFL).
The following is a list of Marquette Head Football Coaches accompanied by their years of service and overall record.
