MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — The North Dakota State football program announced the addition of Joe Beschorner to its coaching staff Tuesday.
Beschorner, who has served as Minnesota State’s offensive coordinator since 2015, will become a running backs coach at NDSU.
The Mavericks have compiled an overall record of 58-8-0, won four Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference championships and made four NCAA postseason appearances during Beschorner’s time with the program, which included a trip to the NCAA Division II National Championship game in 2019.
MSU ranked fourth in the nation in total offense in 2019 with 7,766 total yards. Minnesota State previously ranked 16 nationally the two previous seasons with 6,454 and 6,525 yards in 2018 and 2017, respectively.
A total of 29 Mavericks were named All-NSIC under Beschorner’s guidance, including seven offensive All-Americans in Connor Thomas, Herschel Prater, Jake Porter, Hunter Toppel, Evan Heim, Nate Gunn and Shane Zylstra.
“It has been a pleasure and an honor to work with Joe Beschorner,” Head Coach Todd Hoffner said. “Joe has provided great leadership to Maverick football and we wish he and his family the best with their future endeavors. As the offensive coordinator, Joe guided his troops to lofty performances that have set the mark for greatness and future leadership. He and his family have been a tremendous asset to Minnesota, greater Mankato and Minnesota State.”
