Current Flat Rock defensive coordinator Will Mulvaney passed away Saturday evening of an apparent heart attack.
Mulvaney was a 1968 graduate of the University of Illinois where he played football for the Fighting Illini. He served in the Vietnam War as part of an Airborne/Special Forces Unit.
Mulvaney earned his MBA and PhD and was a college professor for over 20 years, which included a stop at Saginaw Valley State.
His coaching and football background included stops at the University of Wisconsin, Tulane University, Hudson Valley Community College and most recently as the defensive coordinator at the University Wisconsin Milwaukee.
In 1993, Mulvaney was the defensive coordinator for Manchester High School. The Flying Dutchmen finished as the Class C runner-up that season falling to Iron Mountain in the final.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
