Northwest has hired Steve Martin, the defensive coordinator at Heights the past three seasons, as its football coach.
Martin, 30, replaces Weston Schartz, now at West.
Martin is a 1999 Andale graduate and he played three seasons at Bethel College. He was Troy’s coach for four seasons.
Asked what appealed to him about the Northwest job, Martin said “the tradition at the school. It’s a very good tradition. Coach Schartz has built on from what Mr. (Don) Davis did before him.
“And they have a good group of seniors coming back. It just got me excited about staying in the City League and working with these kids.”
