North Dakota State names Klieman next head coach

Posted: Updated:

Chris Klieman's first FCS head coaching job is a big one.  Klieman was named as the successor to Craig Bohl at top ranked North Dakota State.  Bohl is leaving to take over the head job at Wyoming.

Klieman, a Waterloo native, spent the last 2 of his 3 seasons in Fargo as the Bison defensive coordinator.  The previous 6 years he was an assistant on Mark Farley's staff at UNI, his alma mater.  His only head coaching experience came in 2005 when he led the program at Loras College.

The past 3 seasons with Klieman working with NDSU's defense, the Bison have allowed the fewest total points per game in the NCAA FCS division.

Bohl will finish coaching the Bison in the postseason before Klieman takes over the job.
