The UND football team’s former head coach has found a new home.

Chris Mussman, who the school let go after last season, has been named the co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at St. Cloud State.

UND’s buyout of Mussman’s contract, which began at roughly $180,000 over the next two years, now changes as the school can subtract his new salary from the original buyout.

St. Cloud also tagged Mark Sipple, who was a graduate assistant at UND from 1996-98, as defensive coordinator.

“I’m excited to add these two experienced coordinators to our staff,” said St. Cloud head coach Scott Underwood. “I had the privilege of working with Chris and Mark during my time at North Dakota and have followed their careers over the past several years. I know they will be great assets to our football program and university as mentors and teachers, as well as in our community. I am delighted with what both coaches bring to our program.”

Mussman spent the last 14 years at UND — as an assistant coach for eight seasons followed by six years as head coach.

As the head coach from 2008-13, he led UND in its transition from an NCAA Division II program to the FCS. The 2011 UND team won the Great West Conference championship, the first Division I championship in the program’s history.

Prior to becoming the head coach at UND, Mussman was the assistant head coach/offensive coordinator from 2001-07.

Mussman coached at Minnesota State-Mankato from 1991 to 1998.
