Position: Assistant Coach
Years Coached: 10th Season
Alma Mater: Lewis University (Ill.)

Slovick enters his 10th season at SXU and serves as the Cougars’ special teams coordinator and linebackers coach. Prior to Saint Xavier, he spent 11 seasons as head football coach at area rival University of St. Francis (Ill.).

During the 2012 season, one of Slovick’s linebackers broke SXU’s single season tackles record recording 128 stops on the year.  Two of the team’s linebackers earned first team recognition on the 2012 Mid-States Football Association (MSFA) All-Mideast League Team.  In fact, all three of his starting linebackers that year earned All-Mideast League honors with the third named second team.

Slovick was named the 2010 MSFA Mideast League Assistant Coach of the Year after Tom Lynch won the prestigious Fred Mitchell Award back-to-back years as one of college football’s top placekickers.  Slovick has also had a linebacker earn All-American honors in five of the last six seasons.

From 1986-92, Slovick was the defensive coordinator for the Fighting Saints.  In 1987 and 1991, St. Francis ranked among the NAIA’s best in pass, rush and total defense.

When USF was NCAA Division II in 1995, the Saints ranked second in the Midwest Intercollegiate Football Conference in both total defense (305 ypg) and rushing defense (152.8 ypg).

Slovick earned his bachelor of arts degree in political science from Lewis University (Ill.) in 1971 and a master’s degree in physical education from Eastern Illinois University in 1974.

Slovick resides in Joliet and has a son, Shane.
