Steve Marlowe is hanging up the whistle.

After guiding the Skyline High School football program as an assistant under legendary head coach Roger Dupaix and most recently as an assistant coach, Marlowe has decided to retire from coaching after 28 years with the program as noted in a release from the Granite School District.

Most recently the head coach of the Eagles for the last two seasons, Marlowe's Skyline teams went a combined 9-11 in 2012 and 2013.

"We are extremely pleased with Steve's service to the school, community, and the many young men that he has had a positive impact on," said Skyline High principal Doug Bingham in the release.

Under the tutelage of Dupaix and Marlowe, Skyline became a powerhouse program winning eight state championships from 1990 to 2005, including five in a row from 1995 to 1999. When Dupaix, he of a state record 301 career wins, 67 playoff victories and eight rings decided to retire in January 2012, Marlowe took over the program he'd been a part of for so many years.

When Dupaix retired, Marlowe, 58 at the time, told The Salt Lake Tribune, the head coaching position at Skyline was "the job I've always wanted."
