UND safeties coach Marty Rodgers is leaving for a similar position at Southern Illinois.

Rodgers is the first UND assistant to leave UND head coach Bubba Schweigert’s original staff of two years ago.
Rodgers played safety for Schweigert, who was the defensive coordinator at SIU, for the Salukis (2006-09).
Rodgers finished his fourth season as a college coach after coming to UND from Minot State.
