CFL: 9th season
Stamps: 9th season
Mueller is in his ninth season with the Stampeders and his third as quarterbacks coach.
He served the previous five years as running backs coach after starting his CFL coaching career with one season as a defensive assistant.
With Bo Levi Mitchell sidelined by injury last season, rookie quarterback Jake Maier stepped in and became the first player in CFL history to pass for 300 yards in each of his first three starts. As a team, the Stamps finished second in both passing yards and completions of at least 30 yards.
In 2019, injuries forced the Stamps to use four different starting tailbacks. First-year CFLer Ka’Deem Carey led the team in rushing and had a 143-yard performance in the Labour Day Classic.
The previous season, first-year Stamps running back Don Jackson had three 100-yard games and was second among the league’s feature backs with an average of 5.8 yards per carry. When Jackson was sidelined by injury, Romar Morris stepped in and delivered a four-touchdown game in the Labour Day rematch against Edmonton.
In 2017, the Stamps running back group featured tailback Jerome Messam, who cracked the 1,000-yard plateau and missed out on a second consecutive CFL rushing title by just 20 yards. In 2016, Messam won the CFL rushing title with 1,198 yards and was voted the league’s Most Outstanding Canadian.
In 2015, Mueller’s first year as running backs coach, three different players — Jon Cornish, Matt Walter and Messam — recorded 100-yard games and the Stamps ranked second in the CFL with 14 rushing touchdowns.
The Stamps finished among the top two in team rushing touchdowns three times during Mueller’s stint as running backs coach and the blocking provided by the Calgary tailbacks and fullbacks helped the Stamps rank either first or second in fewest sacks allowed all five seasons.
In 2014, his first with the Stampeders, Mueller served as a defensive assistant and worked closely with the linebackers. The Stamps defence ranked second in the CFL with an average of 19.3 points allowed per game and also finished second in takeaways with 43.
Mueller began his coaching career in 2013 when he served as quarterbacks coach for the University of Regina Rams, his alma mater. Under Mueller’s guidance, the Rams led Canada West in passing offence with 359.4 yards per game.
The Regina native played six seasons (2007-2012) at the University of Regina and was the Rams’ starting quarterback for three seasons.
He left Regina with several school records including career pass-completion percentage (62.1), single-season records in pass attempts (310 in 2009), pass completions (182 in 2010) and pass-completion percentage (67.8 in 2012) and single-game records in most attempted passes (55 in 2012 against Manitoba) and pass-completion percentage (78.4 in 2012 at Saskatchewan).
Mueller was invited to the 2011 CFL Combine and attended training camp with Edmonton that June, seeing playing time at quarterback in one pre-season game.
The business administration major quarterbacked the Sheldon-Williams Spartans to the 2006 Saskatchewan 4A high school championship. Marc is the grandson of CFL Hall of Fame quarterback Ron Lancaster and he, wife Jenaya and daughter Sawyer call Calgary home year-round.
