Former Tennessee Titans, LSU football QB Zach Mettenberger rejoins Father Ryan’s staff


Former Tennessee Titans and LSU football quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who spent the past two seasons as an Alabama analyst for Nick Saban, has rejoined Father Ryan’s staff as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Mettenberger was a Father Ryan assistant for the 2021 season when the Irish went 7-5 and lost to eventual state Division II-AAA state champion McCallie, 42-35, in the second round of the TSSAA football playoffs. He was Hillsboro’s offensive coordinator for one year before that.

He threw for 1,412 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions his rookie season. In 2015, he played in seven games and made four starts to replace Marcus Mariota.
