North Dakota fires head coach Mussman

North Dakota Mussman

GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- North Dakota has fired head football coach Chris Mussman after a 3-8 season, including a 2-6 mark in the Big Sky Conference.

UND athletic director Brian Faison says the two met Monday and Mussman was relieved of his duties immediately.

Mussman coached six seasons with UND and had an overall 31-34 record.

He joined the coaching staff as the offensive line coach in 1999, became offensive coordinator in 2001 and took over as the head coach prior to the 2008 season.

Before arriving in Grand Forks, Mussman spent eight seasons at Minnesota State-Mankato. He was a four-year letter winner and starting offensive lineman at Iowa State, where he was team captain in 1990.

Faison says a national search for a new coach will start immediately.
