He claimed the league’s Coach of the Year award after directing NDSU to a 10-8 overall record with three wins over nationally ranked teams.

He is a tireless recruiter that has landed some outstanding talent and is creating a program that can have long-term success in our conference and nationally. Roger and his staff do a great job promoting our program and we are pleased that Roger will be a part of the NDSU Bison family for more years to come.”
