Aaron Mershman, who earned two letters as a tight end for the Ball State football team, has been named a graduate assistant coach for the Cardinals by fourth-year head coach Pete Lembo.

Mershman redshirted for the Cardinals in 2009 before playing 11 games as a tight end in 2010 and earning a second letter in 2011.  Mershman participated in Ball State’s Spring Practice in 2012 before suffering a career ending injury.  He spent the 2012 season as a student assistant coach for the Cardinals.

Mershman played in 19 games in his career and tallied 18 catches for 153 yards and one touchdown.  He averaged 8.5 yards per catch in his two seasons for the Cardinals.

A graduate of Bowling Green High School in Ohio, Mershman competed in football, ice hockey and track.  He will work with the offense as he begins his coaching career with Ball State.

The Cardinals finished the 2013 season with a 10-3 overall record and an appearance in the GoDaddy Bowl in Mobile, Ala.  It marked the second straight season Ball State has advanced to a bowl game, having played in the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl St. Petersburg after the 2012 season and compiling a 9-4 record.
