A newly-hired college football coach who used his first interview with the campus newspaper to praise Adolf Hitler’s leadership abilities has resigned.

Morris Berger, who was hired as offensive coordinator for Grand Valley State University in Michigan on January 20th, announced his resignation Thursday.

It comes a week after he told student newspaper The Lanthorn that Hitler topped the list of historical figures he would like to have dinner with.

As a history graduate from Drury University, Berger was asked in the interview on January 23 to name three historical figures he would share a meal with.
