Here is the daily Bison Media Blog Football Coach Watch List, an unofficial top 10 ranking of the favorites culled from gut feeling, sources, rumors, experience or no valid reason whatsoever to take the head football coaching position at NDSU:

  • 1. Chris Klieman, NDSU defensive coordinator, maybe needs to be convinced not to go to Wyoming.
  • 2. Scottie Hazelton, Nevada defensive coordinator. Former NDSU defensive coordinator and architect of first national title from the defensive side. USC experience helps.
  • 3. Pat Perles, offensive line coach, Syracuse. Former Bison offensive coordinator who went to the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs before that staff was fired.
  • 4. Todd Wash, defensive line coach, Jacksonville Jaguars. We get that NFL guys don’t come back because of the NFL money, but here’s the question for the former Bison assistant and player: If you ever want to be a head coach, now is the time because it’s not going to happen in the NFL.
  • 5. Jimmy Burrow, defensive coordinator, Ohio University. Former Bison assistant who has been a career assistant.
  • 6. Tim Beck, offensive coordinator, Nebraska. Writing is on the wall with the Pelini era, best to get moving now.
  • 7. Brian Ward, defensive coordinator, Western Illinois. This guy just has CEO leadership written all over him.
  • 8. Rob Ambrose, head coach, Towson. He’s brought that program to FCS success.
  • 9. Glenn Caruso, head coach, University of St. Thomas. Great recruiter who knows how to run a program, no matter what level.
  • 10. Brent Pease. A Montana guy, former NFL quarterback who was recently fired as Florida’s offensive coordinator.
