Manchester College plans welcome

event for new head football coach

NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. (Feb. 23, 2004) - The community is invited to a reception for Manchester College's new head football coach, W. Shannon Griffith.  The welcome will be held 3:30 to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 3 in the Spartan Room and upper level of the Physical Education and Recreation Center (PERC) on campus.

"This represents an excellent opportunity to meet informally with the new football coach, to catch a sense of the excitement that he brings to Manchester College," said Tom Jarman, Manchester director of athletics.

Griffith has 13 years of college football coaching experience at the NCAA Division I and Division II levels (at Ball State University and Northwood University in Michigan). He was an Indiana high school All-State/All-Conference quarterback (Northrop High School in Fort Wayne) and a member of a Ball State Mid-American Conference Championship team.

Griffith replaces Dave Harms, who now is athletic director for Manchester High School.

Manchester College, a NCAA Division III team, is a member of the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference.
