UND fires head football coach Chris Mussman

The University of North Dakota relieved Chrss Mussman of his coaching duties today.

Tom Miller, Grand Forks Herald - “At the end of the day, we expect to compete in the Big Sky,” said Faison. “That’s the level of competition we’re going to have to compete at year in and year out in the Big Sky. I felt like we needed to make a change in the program at this point in time to continue that process and build to that level.”

Mussman has two years remaining on his contract. He will receive his full salary in 2014 and 50 percent of his salary in 2015, providing he does not take another coaching position. The full buyout will cost UND approximately $175,000, although Faison said no student fees or state-appropriate money will be uses to cover those costs.

Faison said the decision to relieve Mussman was difficult.
