Mark Elder (born December 10, 1977) is an American football coach, currently the head coach at Eastern Kentucky. Elder was previously an assistant coach at Tennessee.[1]

Biography[edit | edit source]

Elder graduated from Sycamore High School in 1996, and played football at Case Western Reserve.[2] He began his coaching career with stops at Akron, Lehigh, Iona, Wayne State (MI), and Michigan before he was hired as an assistant football coach at Central Michigan by head coach Butch Jones.[3] When Jones was named head coach at Cincinnati in 2010, Elder was named as an assistant.[4] Elder subsequently followed Jones to Tennessee as an assistant coach in 2013.[5]

On December 8, 2015, it was reported that Elder was to be named head football coach at Eastern Kentucky University.[6]. He was formally introduced at a press conference on December 10, 2015.[7] When he began his duties as head coach, he also continued to serve as an assistant coach at Tennessee through the completion of the Outback Bowl.[8]

In four years at EKU, Elder has recorded four straight top-25 rated recruiting classes. In 2018, he led the program to a 7-4 record, recording their most wins since the 2014 season. [9]

Prior to the 2019 season, the Elder-led Colonels were named to preseason Top 25 lists by Lindy's Sports [10] and Hero Sports [11].

Elder and his wife Lindsey have two sons, Owen and Ellis, and one daughter, Lila.[12]
