Head Coach
1st Season

Entering his first season as head football coach at Midland University in 2012, Josh Gehring brings with him a consistent record of excellence. From 2007 to 2009, he set records as an offensive coordinator at Morningside College. In his three seasons, the Mustangs went from averaging 24 points per game to 36.1 (2007), to 48 (2008) and finally 45.1 (2009).  While there, he reformed the Mustang offense, leading Morningside to a No.7 and two No. 5 final national rankings. Morningside averaged over 400 yards per game during his three years as the school's offensive coordinator, with Morningside's quarterbacks completing more than 60 percent of their passes all three seasons. 

During three seasons at Morningside College, Gehring earned a 29-7 record and three GPAC Runner-Up finishes. Gehring's offense while at Morningside outscored its opponent by an average of 43 to 15. During his tenure, Morningside scored over 50 points 13 times and over 60 points eight times. Under his direction, the Mustang offense either broke or tied more than 35 school records. After the 2009 season, Gehring was named the American Football Coaches Association's (AFCA) NAIA Assistant Coach of the Year.

Prior to coming to Midland University, Gehring spent two years as quarterback coach and passing game coordinator with the three-time NCAA Division III national champion Wisconsin-Whitewater Warhawks. While at the University of Wisconsin -Whitewater, Gehring implemented one of the most explosive and efficient passing attacks in the country, averaging over 40 passes per game and completing the ball with nearly 70 percent efficiency.  In his first season, he helped the Warhawks to a perfect 15-0 season and national title.

Gehring has also served as defensive coordinator at Concordia University- Chicago (NCAA III) and has coaching experience at several NCAA Division I programs.

Gehring is a graduate of Ottawa University in Kan., and holds a master's in sports administration from Ball State University. He brings his wife, Jennifer, and their daughter to the Midland community. The couple is expecting their second child in February.
