    I think this is a strong hire when it comes to a D2 OC at a school that's basically been hanging around .500'ish. Hein was the QB for BSU when they got this upswing going back around 2015-16-17 etc. He's had a chance to learn under Pike (OC) and Bolte (HC) at Bemidji..and I think there's real value in that. Bolte has become one of the most respected head coaches in the D2 midwest with how they go about things as a program and the hard nosed manner in which they play. Getting one of his most valued coaches as the NSU OC is a good hire for the Wolves..but he's got quite the task ahead of him with them graduating the two top wideouts in the history of the program..and having a QB recouping an injury (Colton Hackel) and no clear cut RB1, etc.not to mention coming in after spring ball.

    Side note....I've gotten to know Coach Hein over the years and covered him as a player. Really good dude.

    That said, NSU has to make the best of that situation..and I think they have with this hire. I'd expect Hein to run the offensive side of things and then Schmidt to run the D..after things weren't great on that side a year ago. Sometimes a HC just feels the needs to call-it if their neck is the one on the line.
    Good breakdown on the whole thing. If Hein can stick around for awhile (will Schmidt get a few more years?), I think this will be a good move. Will be following NSU closer than in the past

    Dungy was a QB though so maybe?

Outside of OL, Northern is in desperate need of coaches that can develop guys. This is a good start and an important hire for Schmidt as he is on the hot seat.

    Are we talking about Jordan Hein?

    Wow, poached him away from his alma mater. Though in terms of career advancement it makes sense.

    I just realized who it is. They got the money together to outbid Alabama for Milbank legend Kalen DeBoer!

    Northen isn't ready for that move.
