Carleton football coach and assistant professor of physical education, athletics and recreation Kurt Ramler has announced his resignation to pursue other opportunities.

“I’d like to thank Carleton for the opportunity to oversee the program over the last six years,” Ramler said. “We had some great moments and I believe that the program progressed and we've ‘left it better than we found it,’ so to speak.

“I would also like to thank the players, parents, and alumni that I’ve had the good fortune to get to know over the years,” he said. “The best part of Carleton and the best part of this program remains the exceptional individuals involved with the team and the institution. I feel fortunate to have met and befriended so many of you. I wish those involved with the program and the institution the best of luck and continued success going forward.”

Ramler, who took over as head coach in February 2006, amassed a 22-38 mark (12-36 MIAC) during his tenure. He earned the MIAC’s coach of the year award after leading the Knights to a 7-3 mark in 2008, the team’s best record since 1992. During Ramler’s time on the sidelines, the Knights featured 28 All-MIAC citations, nine all-region selections and a D3football.com All-America performer.
 
“The College thanks Kurt for his six years of service, positive impact on our football program and wishes him well in his future endeavors,” Carleton athletic director Gerald Young said.

Young also announced that Bob Pagel, associate head coach and defensive coordinator, has been appointed interim head football coach through the end of the 2012 season.

“We are extremely pleased that Bob has agreed to serve as interim head coach for the 2012 season,” Young said. “His leadership, knowledge, and familiarity with Carleton ensures program stability, and we're looking forward to a successful 2012 fall campaign.”

Pagel, who completed his seventh season on the Knights' staff this past fall, is the 17th head coach in Carleton football history.

“I always hoped that there would be an opportunity here,” Pagel said. “My family loves Northfield. I love the challenges that coaching here are going to provide. I love the fact that this is a top-10 academic school, and that we’ll be able to do some great things and attract not just the best students, but guys that are highly motivated and want to be great football players too. To have the opportunity to be the guy that leads that is pretty exciting to me because this could be a tremendous opportunity for everyone involved.”
