Mack becomes just the fourth head football coach in the history of the DeForest football program. He replaces Mike Minick, who retired at the end of last season, after leading the Norskies to a Division 3 state championship.
Mack served as the head football coach in Wisconsin Dells from 2012 to 2015 before becoming the Chiefs athletic director. Mack also has head coaching stops at Iowa-Grant from 2007 to 2010 and New Berlin West from 2010 to 2012.
Mack also worked as a graduate assistant coach and quality control coach for the University of Wisconsin from 2003-07.
Mack couldn’t be reached for comment on Tuesday morning, but he did tell NBC15 sports reporter George Balekji that the opportunity was too good to pass up.
“This opportunity isn’t great, it’s a good opportunity that doesn’t come along in a great community and it really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a head coach to get that opportunity at a position like this and that’s what sparked my interest,” Mack said.
