USD’s Nielson Set To Return To Old Stomping Grounds
Coyotes Visit Western Illinois Saturday at 3
VERMILLION, S.D. — The Missouri Valley opener for Bob Nielson’s 10th ranked Coyotes will take him back to his old stomping grounds at 16th ranked Western Illinois on Saturday at 3 PM.
Nielson coached the Leathernecks from 2013 through 2015-leading them to the playoffs in his final year before leaving for Vermillion. He lost his first meeting with his old team last year 35-34 in Dakota Dome. This will be Nielson’s first trip back to Macomb and to face the team which is primarily made up of HIS recruits, yet the coach is more focused on getting to 4-0 than his emotions.
