DL Skill Development Coach
Scott Pethtel has spent the bulk of his life in and around the game of football, logging 35 years as a college coach and 9 years coaching at the High School level. His coaching career began shortly after his All-Conference career as a Defensive Lineman and Captain at Adrian College, where he was named Male Athlete of the Year in 1975 and is also a two-time Athletics Hall of Fame inductee in 1985 and 2004.
The first 10 years of his coaching career were spent at his alma mater before receiving the opportunity to move to Ball State. He spent an unprecedented 14 years as an assistant at Ball State before closing out his tenure in Division 1 at Cincinnati and Buffalo.
He then undertook the challenge of leading Division 3 North Park as Head Football Coach for seven seasons from 2006 to 2012. He then moved back to the High School level to close out his coaching career before retiring to spend more time with his family. No matter where his career took him, Pethtel helped aid winning programs as he contributed to Bowl appearances as well as College and High School playoff appearances. In addition, Pethtel helped develop great players at each of his stops, with players receiving College scholarships and All-State recognition at the High School level, as well as many All-Conference, All-American, and professional football draft picks at the collegiate level.
