After 14 seasons as an assistant football coach at the University of Northern Iowa, Mario Verduzco is leaving Cedar Falls for Missouri State.

Verduzco will serve as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Bears.

During his time in Cedar Falls, Verduzco helped the Panthers claim six Valley titles and make eight NCAA Division I FCS postseason appearances, while mentoring seven different UNI signal-callers who earned all-conference recognition on a total of 13 occasions.

Five of those honorees were selected as league freshman or newcomer of the year, and Eric Sanders was a 2007 Walter Payton Award finalist and the MVFC's Offensive Player of the Year.
