Two of UND’s assistant football coaches will not be back next season.
UND Head Coach Kyle (Bubba) Schweigert says the contracts of offensive coordinator Paul Rudolph and offensive line coach Luke Knauf will not be renewed. Both have been with the team since Schweigert was hired as head coach before the 2014 season.
In a statement, Schweigert thanked Rudolph and Knauf for their service.
“These are always tough decisions because they involve families,” Schweigert said, “but I felt a change was needed in the program at this time. When I was hired, I made a commitment to doing what was in the best interests for North Dakota Football and the University of North Dakota."
UND lost three of its last four games, ending the season with a 6-5 record, and missing the playoffs.
