After nine seasons leading the program, head coach Mark Ross has resigned from his post at Misericordia (D-III - PA).

The school announced the move over the weekend. Athletic director Chuck Edkins had the following to share in the school's release:

"Mark has done a remarkable job as our first ever head football coach and we wish him every success in his new position. His student-athletes have lived the mission of Misericordia University and have excelled academically, athletically and socially under his leadership."

Sources tell FootballScoop that Ross is expected to join the staff at Bloomsburg (D-II - PA).

Back in early 2011, Ross was hired to build the program from the ground up. By 2018 he was named Middle Atlantic Conference Coach of the Year after an 8-3 season and 7-1 mark in league play.

A coaching veteran in the region, Ross has previous stops at Ithaca College (D-III - NY) as their defensive coordinator for a decade and East Stroudsburg (D-II - PA).

In 2019, Ross led the team to a 5-5 mark and an appearance in the MAC-Centennial Bowl.
