Northwest football promotes coaches Wright, Flohr


2011 bio:

Charlie Flohr enters his fifth season at Northwest where he has served as the quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator. He also serves as the recruiting coordinator for the Bearcats.

In four seasons under Flohr, Northwest is 36-0 in MIAA play, adding four conference titles along with a 53-6 overall record. The Bearcats also claimed the program's third national title and earned three national runner-up finishes.

Flohr was the leader of the nation's top quarterback and wide receiver combination in during the Bearcats 2009 championship season. Jake Soy and Blake Bolles each earned All-America honors while Soy was named national receiver of the year after hauling in 27 touchdowns and leading Division II with 1,559 yards receiving. Only one player in the history of Division II has caught more touchdowns in one season. Bolles set conference records with 42 touchdown passes and passing for 4,145, numbers that ranked second and fourth in the nation, respectively.

Northwest ranked second nationally in scoring (42 ppg), third in pass efficiency (172.21), sixth in total offense (474.27 ypg) and eighth in passing (298.93 ypg) in 2009, the highest marks in Flohr's four seasons. Northwest has ranked 10th, 32nd, 17th and now third nationally in pass efficiency under Flohr.

The Bearcats have featured the first-team All-MIAA signal caller in back-to-back seasons with Joel Osborn earning MIAA accolades prior to Bolles. Osborn completed a program record 67 percent of his passes during his collegiate career.

Two Northwest receivers have earned All-America honors under Flohr in addition to Soy, Kendall Wright and tight end Mike Petersen. Wright finished a brilliant four-year career with 243 catches for 3,253 yards and 21 touchdowns while Peterson (first team) and Josh Gannan (second team) accounted for both All-MIAA tight ends in 2007.

Flohr served as a graduate assistant with the Bearcats in 2002 and 2003 and was placed in charge of tight ends. After obtaining his master's degree in health and physical education at Northwest, Flohr was hired at conference-rival Truman, where he served as the Bulldogs' wide receivers and recruiting coach. Under the tutelage of Flohr, Truman receiver Jeff Amundson caught 76 passes in 2004, then the fourth-highest single-season total in program history.

Flohr is a 2002 graduate of Dakota State University in Madison, S.D., where he earned a degree in health and physical education. Flohr was a four-year letterwinner in football at his alma mater and was a two-time honorable mention all-conference selection at wide receiver. He graduated as the program's all-time leader in punt returns.

Flohr and his wife, Amy, reside in Maryville and have two sons, Adam and Austin. Amy is a 2004 Northwest graduate.
