MAYVILLE, N.D. -- Derek Schlieve has been hired as the head coach at Mayville State.

Schlieve previously served as Mayville's defensive coordinator for the past three seasons and served as the interim coach this spring following the resignation of former head coach Nathan Chin.

"I am very excited to be the head football coach at Mayville State," Schlieve said. "I think that most people view being the head coach at their alma mater to be the best job possible and I absolutely agree. I would like to thank the coaches that were here before me that helped make this possible. I would also like to thank the alums that showed their support for me. I will work hard to show them how much this means to me and built a program that we can all be happy with."

Schlieve graduated from Mayville State in 2002 and earned a graduate degree from St. Cloud State in 2007. After that, he returned to Mayville State to coach the defensive line.

The Comets went 2-8 last season.
