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.
