Per Andrew:

Isaac Fruechte, the former Vikings and Gophers receiver, doesn't always take a direct route.

But he often seems to get to where he's going.

Fruechte climbed the coaching ranks last month when he was hired as the University of North Dakota's offensive coordinator. He became the third person in January to hold that title after longtime coach Danny Freund left for South Dakota State. Then the Fighting Hawks' first hire, Jake Landry, didn't last long.

"Next day, [North Dakota State] offered, and he flipped," recalled Carl Fruechte, Isaac's father and the decorated Caledonia High School coach in southeast Minnesota.

The job found Fruechte, the 32-year-old former Caledonia track and football star who has consistently worked until opportunity knocked. He was a two-star recruit who needed a year at Rochester Community and Technical College before a four-year Gophers career. He went undrafted in the NFL and twice made the Vikings practice squad.

Coaching football was always his plan after playing.


Go Gophers!!
 


I think it's only a matter of time before he is back with the maroon and gold.
 




Und lost their OC to sdsu as a QB coach
Then hired a St Thomas OC who quit 1 week later when NDSU OC left and NDSU just plucked him easily

So this D3 coach goes to und as OC as 3rd option. Sounds about grand forks. lol
