Northern State parts ways with football coach Dosch

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Northern State Wolves head coach Tom Dosch has been let go by the school. Director of Athletics Josh Moon announced the change in leadership on Wednesday.

A search has begun to find his replacement. The school did not mention whether they will use a search firm, or will have an in-house search committee to find the next head coach.

“We want to thank Tom for his contributions to Wolves football and NSU over the past 10 years,” noted Moon. “Tom built a strong foundation of high character student-athletes who excelled in the classroom. This change is especially difficult because of the steadfast commitment that Tom and his family have made to our community, university and most importantly, our student-athletes.”

Since he took over with the 2010 season, he guided the program to a 53-57 record. He leaves following a 6-5 record in 2019.

The team had a 6-5 conference mark. The Wolves were perfect on the road, as they went 4-0 away from Swisher Field in Aberdeen, South Dakota.

The Wolves won their lone neutral site game. However, at home at Swisher Field, the team struggled with a 1-5 mark.

Their lone win at home came against the University of Mary Marauders in a 49-21 win on Nov. 2.

“Progress has been achieved in many areas, but, unfortunately, that progress has not been realized on the field of play,” Moon said. “As such, after much consideration and evaluation, I feel it is in Northern’s best interest to change the leadership of our football program. We will immediately begin looking for a dynamic leader who can elevate this program and build on the winning tradition of NSU football.”
