Mark Fetterman joined the Franklin & Marshall staff as the defensive coordinator in the spring of 2014 after coaching for five seasons at Widener in the same position.
The 2017 season was a historic campaign for Franklin & Marshall's defense as Fetterman led eight members to All-Centennial Conference (CC) honors, including CC Player of the Year Joe Granahan '19. F&M's defensive unit was one of the Centennial's best, ranking first among all teams in pass defense efficiency at 111.6 as the Diplomats picked off the second-most passes in the CC at 12.
Under Fetterman's guidance at Widener, his defensive unit was third in the nation with 45 sacks and also ranked in the top four in multiple statistical categories in the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) to help lead Widener to the 2012 MAC title and a trip to the NCAA Tournament. While at Widener, Fetterman mentored seven all-conference players and two All-Americans.
Fetterman returned to Widener after serving from 2000-04 as the defensive line coach and strength and conditioning coach at Lehigh University. He coached two All-Americans and 11 all-conference players at Lehigh. The Mountain Hawks in that stretch posted a 49-11 record and went to the NCAA Tournament three times.
From 1997-99, Fetterman was the defensive coordinator at Jacksonville University and from 1995-96 was the strength and conditioning coach at Ursinus, helping the Bears to the 1996 NCAA Tournament. On the high school level, Fetterman was the defensive coordinator at Downingtown East High School from 2007-09 as the squad went to the District I playoffs three straight years and notched a 25-11 record in that span. He also was the defensive coordinator at Coatesville High School from 2005-06 and an assistant coach at Glen Mills High School from 1989-94.
Fetterman graduated West Chester University in 1988 with a B.S. in Sports Administration. He and his wife, Kim, are parents of Jessica and Jordan.
