BSU Names Interim Head Football Coach, Jeff Tesch on Leave of Absence
Bemidji State University announced today that head football coach Jeff Tesch has been put on a leave of absence. Brent Bolte, the former assistant coach and defensive coordinator, will serve as the interim head coach for an unspecified period.
Tracy Dill, the director of Intercollegiate Athletics at BSU, made the announcement today after a scheduled media event was unexpectedly cancelled.
Bolte has been with BSU for 16 years. He has served as the full-time assistance coach since 2003 and named co-defensive coordinator in 2005. He has since been promoted to the sole coordinator in 2013.
Tomorrow will be the first day of the football season, when BSU faces off against Upper Iowa at 6 P-M in Bemidji.
