Faanes named Ohio LB coach

Eau Claire North alumnus Nate Faanes was promoted to linebackers coach for the Ohio University football team on Wednesday.

Faanes was a graduate assistant for the Division I Bobcats the last three seasons. Prior to his arrival at Ohio, he was an assistant coach at UW-Eau Claire.

He will be a full-time coach under 15th-year Bobcats head coach Frank Solich.

“I am extremely excited and honored to be named the linebackers coach here at Ohio,” Faanes said in a press release. “I have been lucky enough to experience how special this university and the Athens community both are. It is a great opportunity to continue to work for Coach Solich, Coach Collins and the staff, as well as coach a great group of student-athletes.”
