Baker to name Grossner football coach

January 22, 2004


— Mike Grossner, offensive coordinator at Western State College in Gunnison, Colo., is the new head football coach at Baker University.

Grossner was to be introduced at a news conference this afternoon.

Grossner grew up in Phoenix, Ariz., and played college football at Bethany College in Lindsborg. Grossner was head coach at Glendale (Ariz.) Community College from 1997-2000 after spending six seasons as an aide at the two-year school.

In 2000, Glendale won the NJCAA championship and Grossner was named AFCA junior college coach of the year.

A 1987 Bethany College grad, Grossner also owns a masters degree from Northern Arizona. He replaced John Frangoulis who resigned last November after Baker's third straight losing season.
