Football

Cody Muller, who shined as a defensive end at Souderton (class of 2009) and New Hampshire, has been named the new head football coach at Pennridge. Muller, 27, spent the last two seasons as an assistant coach at Saucon Valley, a Class 4A school located near Bethlehem.

“This is a great opportunity,” Muller said. “I’m really excited about our returning players and the enthusiasm they’re showing as they get ready for next season.”

Muller replaces Jeff Hollenbach, who resigned at the end of last season. In two stints with the Rams, from 1997 to 2004 and 2013 to 2017, Hollenbach compiled a 112-47 overall record (.704 winning percentage).
