Football · Chambers resigns as Giants football coach


Marion High School head football coach Craig Chambers has resigned as the Giants’ head football coach to return to coaching in Indianapolis.

Chambers came from Indianapolis to Marion in 2015. He led a rebuilding period for the Giants football team, taking them to some of the most successful seasons in team history.

Chambers’ resignation from his Marion post will not be officially accepted until the next regularly scheduled School Board meeting, but Arsenal Tech High School in Indianapolis announced his hiring this evening.

“We are extremely saddened to learn that Marion Giants head football Coach Craig Chambers will be leaving our football family as well as the Marion High School faculty to pursue another opportunity at Indianapolis Arsenal Technical High School,” Marion High School Athletic Director Steve Moritz said. “In Coach Chambers’ four seasons with the Giants, he restored the program to its highest standard, with a 34-13 record, one sectional title, one regional championship, one undefeated regular season, one North Central Conference championship, and an NCC Coach of the Year award. We wish Coach Chambers and his family all of the best as he pursues this new endeavor. The search for a new Marion High School football coach will begin immediately, and I assure you that the best and most viable candidate available to MHS will be hired to keep Giants football at a championship level.”
