Grand Forks, ND ( – The University of North Dakota fired head
football coach Chris Mussman on Monday, just two days after he finished his
sixth season with a 3-8 record.

Mussman had a 31-34 mark at UND. His team finished 2-5 in the Big Sky
Conference this season.

“Coach Mussman and I met this morning at which time I shared with him my
decision to make a change in our football leadership,” athletic director Brian
Faison said, adding UND has begun a national search for a new head coach.

Mussman joined the UND coaching staff as the offensive line coach in 1999.
Mussman was elevated to offensive coordinator in 2001 and took over as the head
coach prior to the 2008 season.
