Kory Allen, a 1995 Albion High graduate, has been named the head football coach at Findlay University in Ohio.

Allen, who is beginning his 17th season at Findlay, has previously served as the team’s offensive coordinator.

He has been serving as interin head coach since April 20 when former Coach Rob Keys announced he was leaving the program.

“Having helped build this program in the NCAA era over the last 16 years has been extremely satisfying. A lot of players and coaches have put in a lot of work into making Findlay football what it is today”, said Allen in a press release at the time of his appointment. “I am humbled and honored to be selected as the next head football coach. We will work every day to represent this school in a first class manner.”

Allen graduated from Ohio Northern University in 2000 with a B.A. in Sports Management. He was a three year starter for the Polar Bears.

He served as offensive line coach at Ohio Northern from 2001-2003 and then as offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator at Baldwin Wallace in 2004 before coming to Findlay.
