Indy Eleven announce Mark Lowry as new head coach

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indy Eleven have announced a new head coach.

Mark Lowry joins the team to become the fourth head coach in club history.

Lowry heads to Indianapolis after three seasons with El Paso Locomotive FC, leading the team to a 42W-19L-29D record. He is by all accounts one of the most successful coaches in the USL in that time.

“In Mark Lowry, Indy Eleven has found a coach who will be as passionate about connecting with and contributing to our community as he will be to strengthening our club on the field,” Indy Eleven President and Chief Executive Officer Greg Stremlaw said in a statement. “While still a relatively young coach, his impressive results speak volumes both as a tactician and a leader, and we cannot wait to see those traits put into action.

Lowry, 36, is a native of Birmingham, England.

“I’m excited for the challenge of getting the club back to where it belongs, fighting for championships and towards the top end of the table,” Lowry said in a statement. “It’s what this fan base deserves, and you have my word I’ll work hard every single day to instill a winning culture and a culture of high standards that embody what it means to represent Indianapolis and the Eleven brand.”

Lowry replaces Martin Rennie, who left the team in June 2021.
