Charlie Flohr enters his sixth season at Northwest and second as offensive coordinator after pacing the Bearcats to a record setting year offensively in 2011.


Regarded as one of the top offensive minds in NCAA II, Flohr has also earned the reputation as a winner going 53-2 during conference play in six seasons at Northwest. The Bearcats also claimed the program’s third national title in 2009 and earned three national runner-up finishes from 2006 to 2008.


Flohr was the leader of the nation’s top quarterback and wide receiver combination 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. Under Flohr, Northwest has ranked 10th, 32nd, 17th, 3rd and 5th nationally in pass efficiency and led the nation in scoring during the 2011 season at 48.64 points per game.


The 2011 season also saw the Bearcats average over 50 points per game during the regular season and share the lead in total offense most of the season before finishing fourth at 495.07 yards per game. The MIAA leader in passing efficiency, Trevor Adams also finished ranked 11th in NCAA II as Northwest set school records for points scored in a season with 681. The 681 points was also the second most in college football regardless of division and only surpassed by NCAA Division I Houston by nine points in their bowl game win.


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.


A native of Gillette, Wy., Flohr is a 2002 graduate of Dakota State University in Madison, S.D., where he earned a degree in health and physical education and earned his master’s at Northwest in 2003. 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 resides in Maryville with his wife, Amy, and their children Adam, Austin and Alec.
