Muellenberg resigns as Bangor head football coach

Will still be volunteer assistant with program

Rick Muellenberg is set to resign as the head varsity football coach at Bangor High School. The move will become official at Wednesday night’s school board meeting.

In 18 seasons as the Cardinals head coach he led the program to a record of 143-54. That also includes nine Scenic Bluffs Championships and two WIAA Division 7 State Championships.

Under Muellenberg’s watch the football program won it’s first conference title and qualified for the playoffs for the first time in 1996. The Cardinals have now qualified for the postseason ten consecutive seasons and 15 of the past 16 years.

Muellenberg is accepting a new position within the Bangor School District becoming the PreK-12 Assistant Principal.

Longtime assistant Kevin Kravik will become the interim head coach for the upcoming season and Muellenberg will serve as a volunteer assistant.
