Erich Janousky is in his second season as the offensive coordinator for the Wisconsin Lutheran College football team.
In Janousky's first season directing WLC's offense in 2013, the Warriors racked up a school-record 4,140 yards of total offense and scored 287 points, the second-most in program history. WLC ranked third in the NACC in total offense and also matched a school record with 23 rushing touchdowns. Four Warriors offensive players received all-conference recognition.
Janousky previously served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at two-time defending Northern Athletics Conference champion Concordia University Chicago for seven seasons (2006-2012). Janousky directed the Cougars to the top offense in the NAC for four consecutive years (2009-2012), including three seasons where CUC ranked in the top 14 nationally in total offense. His 2010 unit averaged 499.7 yards and 49.2 points per game, good for sixth in NCAA Division III. Since the 2008 season, the Cougars have averaged 437.2 yards and 34.6 points per game. While at CUC, Janousky coached 46 offensive players to all-conference recognition, including three NAC Offensive Player of the Year recipients.
Before arriving at the suburban Chicago school, Janousky coached in the high school ranks for a combined eight seasons at Milwaukee Lutheran High School (2001-2005) and St. John Lutheran High School (1999-2001) in Ocala, Fla. Janousky produced four all-conference quarterbacks, two conference players of the year, and three NFL players during that time. He orchestrated the state's top offense in 2004 (320 yards per game), and was named the 2005 North Shore Conference Assistant Coach of the Year. Janousky, who was also a business education teacher at MLHS, assisted the Red Knights to their first two playoff appearances in school history (2005, 2002). His offenses averaged 402 yards per game during his five years at the school.
Janousky graduated from the University of Florida in 1999 with a bachelor of arts degree in business management.
A native of Ocala, Fla., Janousky was born September 1, 1973. He resides today in Milwaukee.
