The hunt to fill the Menlo College football head-coaching void ended with a familiar face being named to take the helm as the school’s newest head coach.

Menlo Director of Athletics Keith Spataro announced that 1996 UC Davis graduate Mark Grieb has been named the Menlo head football coach. Grieb makes his return to the Oaks’ NAIA football program following two brief stints as an assistant coach. In 2003 he served as the team’s offensive coordinator and in 2011 he headed up the receiving corps as a position coach.

“I’m very pleased to have Mark join the Oaks family. Throughout the process he demonstrated the character traits and skill set necessary to advance Menlo football into the future,” Spataro said. “Our players, their families and the Menlo community — including the alumni, are going to be extremely pleased to have Mark at the helm. He will prove to be an amazing leader and I look forward to working with him as he builds an amazing football program here at Menlo College.”

Grieb is thrilled to return to Menlo, in Atherton, with the opportunity to take over the responsibilities as head coach.

“I was really excited because I know what a big deal it is to be offered this position and how many people applied,” Grieb said. “Even to be someone that was considered to be interviewed for the job was a big deal and I’m obviously really excited about coming here and being the head coach.”

From 1999 to 2012, Grieb spent 12 successful seasons as the quarterback of the San Jose SaberCats of the Arena Football League where he led the squad to three Arena Bowl championships, earning MVP honors in 2004 and 2007. He earned Maxwell Club Arena Football Player of the Year honors in 2004.

Apart from his remarkable career with the SaberCats, Grieb also spent a season as a member of the Scottish Claymores of the NFL Europe.

A San Jose native, Grieb was a three-sport standout at San Jose’s Oak Grove High School. He went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from UCD and earned a master’s degree in science education from Stanford University. He has spent the past year teaching chemistry at Leland High School in San Jose and lives in San Carlos with his wife, Erin, and twin daughters, Ava and Maddie.
