The move from the DAC to the Frontier conference for the Dickinson State football team is complete.
The only thing left for the Blue Hawks to do is step out on the field.
And leading DSU out on to the gridiron for his 38th season as the Head Coach will be Hank Biesiot.
Biesiot is one win shy from tying Frosty Westering for the most victories in NAIA history, and two away from being the All Time NAIA winningest coach.
Wins won't come easy however heading into a new, tougher conference for Biesiot and his blue hawks,
But to his new opponents, the wins and the team will strengthen the Frontier conference.
Mike Van Diest / Carroll College Head Football Coach "You can't take away the two hundred fifty plus wins that he already has. It makes no difference. He has those under his belt, he's earned them, he's deserved it, they are great for under the cap for Dickinson Sate. So I think it's a quality program to come in and I just wish Hank the best of wishes because it brings a brand name in coaching to the Frontier Conference with somebody like Hank Biesiot. We've had Bob Petrino, we've had Bob Green, and now you bring a future hall of famer in, it only gets better."
