Report: Rick Finotti Leaving Michigan To Become Head Coach at John Carroll

According to, former-St. Edward head coach and University of Michigan analyst Rick Finotti is leaving Ann Arbor to become head coach at John Carroll.

Finotti first joined Michigan’s staff as Director of Football Operations in 2015 and was an analyst in 2016.

He was head coach at St. Edward from 2009-2014, winning two state championships and going 62-15 in his six seasons.

Finotti replaces Tom Arth, who led the Blue Streaks to a 12-2 season in 2016, reaching the Division III Semifinal.

Arth went 40-8 in four seasons at John Carroll and became head coach at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, a Football Championship Subdivision school, following the 2016 season.

Finotti has big shoes to fill, but with a local connection and pedigree like his, the Blue Streaks could have another recipe for success.
