Stugart to coach Sioux Falls

The University of Sioux Falls has picked Central Missouri

defensive coordinator Jed Stugart as its new head football

coach.

The Cougars have won three national NAIA titles in five years,

though they move up to Division II next season. Coach Kalen DeBoer

stepped down earlier this month to become offensive coordinator at

Southern Illinois.

The school announced the choice late Saturday. Stugart spent

last season as linebackers coach at UNLV, which fired its entire

coaching staff in December. He was there just one season, after

being head coach of Mid-America Nazarene for three seasons.
