Jeff Cole Takes Over at Marshall

By Tim Peterson

(Pasadena) – Jeff Cole was named the new head coach at Marshall earlier this month sources confirmed Wednesday.

There were rumors earlier this year that Marshall was considering dropping football but now the Eagles will field a football team at not only the varsity level but a lower level as well.

The Eagles went 6-4 overall last year and 3-3 in the Mission Valley League including a win over Rosemead in the season finale. Cole takes over for Scott Faer, who stepped down after the season.

    Pretty sad that SG doesn’t have a coach (former Matador)

    No Tim, I didn’t know that Marshall had bested Rosemead, but with that great accomplishment in mind, I’m going to push for a sequel to the McConaughey movie, only this time YOU will be the one to bring audiences to tears when you sit at your keyboard and pound-out the words “Marshall is back.” I’d like to start filming right now, but I’m waiting on board approval.
    From T. Peterson: Ha Ha! Now that’s funny.

    Interesting that the school thought of ending the football program after a successful year

    Thanks to MVS for this timely announcement; ensuring the continuity of football at Marshall is central to my well-being, along with someday getting Lacrosse at the school.
    From T. Peterson: I get the sarcasm however Marshall is an MVL school and from what we had been hearing regarding their program we wanted it noted that they are definitely back. Also did you know they beat Rosemead last year?
