Rudolph was the head coach of the Beavers for seven seasons and finished with a 33-40 record. Minot State ended its 2013 campaign with a 2-9 record.

“I think we made some strides for the football program since that first season,” Rudolph said in a press release. “There were some good things and some disappointments certainly, but overall it was good.”

He is the first assistant coach to be hired by UND head coach Kyle “Bubba” Schweigert.

“I’ve known Bubba for a long time and competed against him in the old North Central Conference and really respect him,” Rudolph said. “We had some discussions and visited back and forth (after Schweigert was hired at UND). I didn’t mind my head coaching job by any means, but really enjoyed calling the offense and calling it from the booth. I feel I’ve gotten better at it from the sidelines, but there is nothing like doing it from the booth.

“(UND) has won some championships in the past and they made a big move to the Big Sky and it is our task to get them back to winning.”
