North Dakota State Says Football Coach To Be Named Soon

FARGO, N.D. (AP FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota State officials are moving quickly to find a new football coach and say the replacement for Kansas State-bound Chris Klieman will likely have ties to the program.
Athletic director Matt Larsen says he hopes to name a coach by national signing day on Wednesday. He declined to name candidates. But those who fit that job description include current defensive coordinator Matt Entz, current offensive coordinator Courtney Messingham, Wyoming offensive coordinator Brent Vigen and Iowa offensive line coach Tim Polasek.
Vigen, a North Dakota native, and Polasek both worked under Wyoming coach Craig Bohl when Bohl was at North Dakota State.
Five of the last six head football coaches have earned national championships. The only one who didn't came from outside the program.
