Head Coach of Football
Lecturer in Physical Education
Dan McCarty is in his second season as St. Norbert College's head football coach in 2016.
In his first season, McCarty led the Green Knights to a 10-1 record - St. Norbert's first 10-win season since 2007. The Green Knights won the Midwest Conference championship by defeating an eight-win Monmouth College team 16-7 in the MWC Championship Game. St. Norbert also scored wins over two College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin teams - Carthage College and North Park University - in non-conference action.
McCarty, the 11th head coach in St. Norbert history, arrived in De Pere after spending one year as the head coach at Southern Door High School, located in his native Door County. McCarty's collegiate experience includes coaching at UW-Stout from 2007-2010, where he coached offensive line and defensive line, and was the defensive coordinator in 2010.
McCarty also coached at his prep alma mater, Sturgeon Bay High School, from 2003-2006 and again in 2011. In his first stint with the Clippers, McCarty aided Sturgeon Bay to the 2004 WIAA Division 4 state championship as the offensive coordinator.
McCarty also coached under current South Dakota coach Bob Nielson at UW-Eau Claire and the University of Minnesota-Duluth. McCarty coached tight ends in 1998, and went with Nielson to Duluth to coach wide receivers and tight ends from 1999 to 2001. He also was the head coach of the Eidsvoll 1814s in Norway in the summer of 2001.
