LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Delphi head football coach Josh Strasser is taking his talents south. He is set to join Ken Frauhiger’s McCutcheon Mavericks this upcoming season as an assistant.
The decision to move, he told WLFI on Friday, wasn’t easy. Strasser is an alumnus of Delphi, and was named an Indiana all-star his senior season with the Oracles. He has been at the helm in Delphi for 8 years, including a 42-43 overall record with an undefeated regular season in 2018.
Strasser says the move comes as a result of his family’s high level of involvement in Tippecanoe County School Corporation.
“We’re a very tight-knit family at home,” said Strasser. “My wife is a teacher and then our two young kids [in TSC]. Just taking a look at what was best for our family. We really felt this jump was good for our family.”
It is currently unclear where Coach Strasser will fit into Ken Frauhiger’s coaching staff at McCutcheon. One thing is certain: Strasser brings experience in coaching all positions, and has promised the Mavs coaching staff to be a “utility guy.”
“When you’re a head coach at a small school you kinda become a jack-of-all-trades at times. I just told Coach [Frauhiger] that I’m a utility guy for him,” said Strasser.
