Aaron Hafner, Luther College Head Football Coach

Aaron Hafner is beginning his fourth season with the  Norse football team at Luther College. After graduating from Pittsburg State University (Kansas) in 1997, Hafner  was the head coach at Republic High School (Mo.) from 2003-06; head coach at Francis Howell Central High School (Mo.) in 2002; and was the defensive coordinator at Webb City High School (Mo.) from 1998-2001. He spent seven years as the offensive coordinator at William Penn University (Iowa) before coming to Luther. During his tenure at William Penn, the Statesmen captured two Mid-States Conference championships, and made the NAIA National Playoffs. Last year in his second season with the Norse, Luther led the Iowa Conference averaging 273 yards rushing per game and Hafner led the Norse to first non-losing season since 2010.
