He moved on to become the head men’s soccer coach at Clarke University for three years from 2016-18, and returned to St. Ambrose in the fall of 2019 as an assistant coach with both the SAU men’s and women’s programs that season. Hollmer was named the head men’s soccer coach at St. Ambrose in December 2019.

He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing and Business Administration from Mount Mercy, and a Master’s of Business Administration from St. Ambrose.
The defending State Champion Knights Boys Soccer program will begin practice on March 13.
