Former UND football coach arrested in Iowa

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa – A former University of North Dakota football coach has been arrested in Iowa on suspicion of soliciting prostitution.

Police in Council Bluffs, just across the Missouri River from Omaha, Neb., say former UND and Nebraska-Omaha head football coach Pat Behrns was one of 12 people arrested Tuesday during a sting operation at a Pottawattamie County hotel.

The 63-year-old Behrns served as the UNO Mavericks’ head coach from 1994 until the century-old program was shut down in March 2011. Before that, Behrns had been head coach of the UND football team from 1980 to 1985.

Pottawattamie County Jail authorities say Behrns posted a $2,000 bond Tuesday evening to be released.
