Marshfield's Goettl Honored by Packers

Congrats goes out to Marshfield coach Denny Goettl.

The first year Tigers coach has been named the Green Bay Packers High School Coach of the Week. Goettl and the Tigers will face Cedarburg Saturday in Appleton with a trip to Madison on the line.

Denny Goettl of Marshfield High School has been named Green Bay Packers High School Coach of the Week, the organization announced Tuesday.

Goettl, in his first season as the head coach of the Division 2 program, led the Tigers to a 21-14 victory over No. 3-seeded Menomonie last Saturday during the third round of the WIAA playoffs. The victory marks the Tigers’ second win over a higher seeded opponent in the 2010 playoffs. Marshfield defeated No. 1-seeded La Crosse Logan in the opening round, 7-6.

“We went through some ups and downs this year,” Goettl said. “We have a brand new staff and a team without many seniors who had experience playing the year before, and now we’re really starting to mold together here at the end of the season.”

A native of Stanley, Wis., Goettl played football at Stanley-Boyd (Wis.) High School for head coach Jim Brinker. Upon graduating in 1988, he played quarterback at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse for coaches Larry Terry and Roger Harring. After spending two years playing football in Bologna, Italy, Goettl returned to the United States and was hired as an offensive coordinator at Marshfield High School, before ultimately being promoted to his current position in 2010. Goettl is also a math teacher at Marshfield High School.

Goettl and his staff oversee a program of 168 players, including a varsity roster of 83. He is assisted by Kris Berg, Dean Bryant, Chris Fischer, Paul Foegen, Randy Hartwig, Scott Klein, Jerry Littmann, Len Luedtke Jr., Jim McDonald, A.J. Rasmussen, and Ben Will.

Goettl and his wife, Marie, have two sons, Andy and Joey.
