Northern Iowa defensive coordinator interviews for NDSU position

FARGO - North Dakota State head football coach Craig Bohl said today that he has interviewed Northern Iowa defensive coordinator Chris Klieman for the defensive backs position.

Klieman just finished his eighth year with the Panthers, which play in the same Missouri Valley Football Conference as NDSU. The Bison are looking for a secondary coach after Brian Ward resigned to become the defensive coordinator at Drake University (Iowa.).

Bohl said he cannot comment if the position has been offered to anybody.

Meanwhile, UNI players linked to Twitter accounts appear to be bracing for losing a coach.

Northern Iowa defensive back Garrett Scott said on his Twitter account “our db coach just left us.” Varmah Sonie, another defensive back, tweeted “imma miss my coach.”
