For the first time in 15 years, there's a new head coach for U Mary football.
The Marauders introduced Josh Kotelnicki this afternoon as the 5th head coach in U Mary history.
Last season Kotelnicki was the defensive coordinator at UND.
He takes over a Marauders program who was 6 and 5 this past year.
But Kotelnicki says football is results based, and he'll work for results on a daily basis.
Josh Kotelnicki: "the goal this year is we need to be playing meaningful football game in the month of November I'm a very sequential person, I don't want to come in and talk about National Championships, and all that other stuff. A, B,C,D, the goal for this program next year is to be playing meaningful football games in the month of November when something's at stake."
Kotelnicki says he's addressed the seniors that will return to the team, and he's impressed by their attitudes.
Kotelnicki wants to move the program forward starting today.
He's already told the players there's one word that will not be used during this first year, and that's transition.
Kotelnicki takes over for Myron Schulz who was head coach for 15 years at U Mary.
Kotelnicki says his mission at U Mary is to win, graduate student athletes, and do it all in a manor that makes people proud.
This is his first head coaching job.
