Greg Breitbach Nabs Head Job

It is official:  UND Offensive Coordinator Greg Breitbach has been named the Head Coach at Millersville University in Millersville, PA and has agreed to a 4-year deal.  He will be the 21st head coach in Marauder history.

Millersville is a Division II program that plays in the PSAC East Division.  The PSAC is one of the stronger DII conferences, with the likes of East Stroudsburg, California (PA), and Indiana (PA), who UND squared off against in the DII semi-finals back in 1993 (beating UND 21-6).  In 2012, Millersville put up a 2-9 record, leaving Breitbach some definite room for improvement.

While at UND, Breitbach was at the wheel of one of the most prolific offense’s in school history last season when they averaged 33.5 pts and 430 yds/game.  QB Braden Hanson set the Big Sky record for most passing yards in a game vs. Montana with 660, while QB Marcus Hendrickson blossomed as a senior, as well.  WR Greg Hardin flourished in Breitbach’s offense, setting a Big Sky record for most receiving yards in a game vs. Montana with 330.  Hardin went on to be named to multiple FCS All-American teams.

Breitbach leaves UND after 7 seasons in Grand Forks.  Arriving in 2006, he coached running backs and quarterbacks as a position coach, prior to being name offensive coordinator.

It’s been no secret that Breitbach has had aspirations of becoming a head coach so this move comes as no surprise – it was only a matter of time.  The Baker, Montana native has earned this opportunity and he will be missed at UND.

We wish him and his family nothing but the best and thank him for his 7 years of service to the UND Football Program.

    I wish coach Brietbach the best~~~ I am however very concerned about the replacement with so many coaches leaving. The luxery of having someone within is running low. I read that Mussman may take over as OC. He is already the Lineman coach and head coach. I don’t doubt that Luke can step in but they have to start bringing in coaches with some solid experience if they ever want to be a contender in the big sky. It is my opinion, that you can recruit good athletes but coaches at the college level don’t always prove they can make them great. You have to keep teaching for progress. Just look at the Gophers!


      Could not agree more CR1984! The rumor is that rather than open it up to a search for a proven OC, Mussman has continued his theme of promoting the “good old boys club” and has made Schleusner the OC!!! I don’t know much about the guy’s resume, but I have to believe there are more qualified people out there. We have an offense with two redshirt freshmen QB’s with zero game experience. Now we have an OC with zero experience in that role. At some point, Mussman is going to venture outside of the UND grad bubble for his staff.
