JIM GLOGOWSKI HEAD COACH • 8TH SEASON • 33-37 RECORD AT SIMPSON

When Jim Glogowski came to Simpson in 2008, he brought a sense of excitement and enthusiasm to the school’s football program. Leading a passionate coaching staff, Glogowski has the pieces in place to bring the Storm back to prominence. Glogowski completed his seventh season as Simpson’s head coach in 2014. The 31st head coach in program history, Glogowski owns an overall record of 33-37. His 33 wins put him third on the school’s all-time wins list, just one shy of second. In 2012 he added the role of defensive coordinator in addition to his head coaching duties. Arguably the best season of Glogowski’s career came in 2013, when Simpson went 7-3 overall, 5-2 in the Iowa Conference and finished the season in sole possession of second place. Simpson won five games when trailing or tied in the fourth quarter or overtime and boasted the league’s offensive MVP in quarterback Taylor Nelson. Simpson moved into a tie for first in the conference with a dramatic 50-46 win over Dubuque in Week 8, but a last-second touchdown by Buena Vista in Week 9 moved the Storm to second. Glogowski and the Storm started the 2012 season 5-1, including wins over rivals

2015 SIMPSON STORM FOOTBALL

Wartburg (20-19) and Central (21-18). Simpson suffered a three-game skid in the middle of the season, but closed the year with a win over Luther to give Simpson its best record since 2008 and finish in a tie for second in the Iowa Conference standings. After starting the 2011 season 0-3, the Storm won five of their last seven games. Included in the run was a thrilling 38-37 overtime win over then-No. 19 Wartburg in Waverly. Simpson made up a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit in the win, its first over Wartburg since 1997. In his debut season of 2008, Glogowski delivered the first winning season in four years, as the Storm posted a 7-3 record in finishing third in the conference. The seven wins marked the most by a Simpson first-year head coach since Lloyd Dean led Simpson to a 7-3 record in 1931. Simpson posted the best total offense and total defense in the Iowa Conference in the process. Glogowski came to Simpson from the University of South Dakota, where he spent four seasons with the Coyotes. From 2006 to 2007, Glogowski served as the team’s defensive coordinator, guiding Division II’s fifth-best run defense in 2006. Prior to joining the South Dakota staff, Glogowski was the defensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator at Allegheny College (Pa.) from 2001-03. From 2000 to 2001, Glogowski was special teams coordinator and outside linebacker coach at Clarion University (Pa.). Prior to that he was special teams coordinator and inside linebacker coach at Allegheny from 1998-2000, a graduate assistant at Augustana College (S.D.) in 1997-98 and a student assistant at South Dakota in 1996. A four-year starter for the Coyotes at strong safety and linebacker, Glogowski earned Don Hansen Football Gazette All-America Honors in 1995 after a season in which he had 91 tackles, 21 tackles for loss, 5.5 quarterback sacks and an interception. He was also voted the North Central Conference Most Valuable Defensive Back in 1995. He earned All-Conference honors in 1995 and was honorable mention All-Conference in 1993 and 1994. Jim and his wife Kate, along with sons Jacob and Ben and daughters, Maddie and Samantha, reside in Indianola.
