Marc Kolb

Offensive Coordinator, University of Missouri-Rolla


Marc Kolb finished his fourth year as the Miners' offensive coordinator and first as assistant head coach. In 2005 UMR had the 4th best passing attack in NCAA II competition and finished 19th overall in total offense. The 2005 Miners set several team records including most yards a game (433.8), most points per game (34.5), most touchdowns in a season (50), and most pass completions with 305.


Last season, the Miners had the top-ranked passing offense in the MIAA as it racked up a then school record 341.5 yards per game through the air to rank third in the NCAA Division II ranks in passing offense. The Miners have set numerous offensive records over the past four seasons.


Kolb came to UMR after a four-year stint at Fairfield University, where he started as the defensive line coach in 1998. He switched to the offensive side a year later as he became the offensive coordinator and assistant head coach in the 2001 season.


In the three seasons Kolb served as offensive coordinator, the Stags averaged 34.5 points per game. Fairfield scored 37.1 points a game in 1999, which ranked 12th in NCAA Division I-AA, then moved to fifth the next year when it scored 38.7 points a contest. In his third year as offensive coordinator, Fairfield averaged 27.3 points a game under a new head coach. In that span, Fairfield set or tied 78 school records.


He has coached offensive units that have finished among the top teams in Division I-AA in several offensive categories, including rushing, passing and total offense. The Stags averaged 406.7 yards of total offense in that span.


A native of Seminole, Fla., Kolb earned his bachelor's degree at Brown University in 1994 and entered the coaching ranks in 1995 at Curry College in Massachusetts.


In 1997, Kolb moved on to Framingham State to serve as the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach for one season before joining the Fairfield staff.


Kolb and his wife, Lisa, have two sons (Matthew and William) and one daughter (Hannah).
