Rob Flowers is returning home.
The Muhlenberg grad was approved as football coach at his alma mater at Thursday’s school board meeting.
Flowers replaces John Lorchak, who resigned last month.
This will be the third high school head coaching job in Berks for Flowers.
He resigned last December as the coach at Daniel Boone after leading the Blazers to a 17-31 record in five seasons, including 2-8 in 2022. In 2021, he led Boone to a 5-4 record and its first District 3 playoff appearance since 2014.
Flowers was the head coach at Reading High for seven seasons (2011-17) and went 26-47.
Overall, he has a 43-78 record.
This fall he was the co-offensive coordinator and wide receiver coach at Albright.
His younger brother, Matt, is in his third season as the boys basketball coach at Muhlenberg.
In high school, Rob Flowers played quarterback for the Muhls and passed for more than 2,220 yards, including 1,361 as a senior in 1998. That season, he led Muhlenberg to the Inter-County League championship and a school-record 11 wins.
He went to Kutztown University, where he played three seasons, including two at quarterback.
Flowers also had success as quarterback of the Reading Express indoor football team for three seasons.
He was named AIFA Player of the Year in 2009, when he threw for 3,350 yards and 72 TDs in leading the Express to a 14-3 record and the league championship.
Lorchak had a 4-33 record in four seasons.
Muhlenberg went 1-5 in Section 2 of the Lancaster-Lebanon League, 1-9 overall this fall.
