After months of strenuous searching and interviewing, Millersville University has found its next Head Football Coach, Greg Breitbach. As the Marauders 21st head coach, the former offensive coordinator of the University of North Dakota plans to instill a new, positive attitude among a once demoralized team.
During his career with the Fighting Sioux, Breitbach saw the team move from the Division II to the Division I Football Championship Subdivision level. After improving to the new conference, the University won their first Division I championship.
Breitbach’s Fighting Sioux offense averaged 33.5 points and 430.5 yards per game under his teaching, setting Big Sky Conference records for passing yards in a game, as well as two school records for total offense in a single game. Nationally, University of North Dakota’s offense was ranked in the top 20 of highest scoring offenses, passing offenses, and passing efficiency. Breitbach’s impressive career at the school is sure to make an impact here at Millersville.
Other notable positions Breitbach held was the offensive coordinator for Wisconsin Stevens-Point, a position coach at Lewis & Clark College, and the offensive coordinator of his alma mater, Montana-Western, where the school was named a national semifinalist in 1994.
With his extraordinary resume as a coach, Breitbach seems to be the best choice for Marauders football. At his press conference, the new coach explained his plans for recruiting, engaging alumni, and setting up the players for success both on and off the field. It is without hesitation that we here at Millersville University say “welcome” to Coach Breitbach, and may you have the best of luck as the team’s new leader.
