The University of South Dakota has named an interim head football for the Coyotes after firing Ed Meirerkort.
USD athletic director David Sayler announced Wednesday that offensive coordinator Wesley Beschorner will lead the team while officials begin a national search for Meirerkort's replacement.
The university announced Tuesday it would not renew Meirerkort's contract. Sayler says the team needs new leadership as they transition from the Great West Conference to the Missouri Valley Football Conference next year.
Beschorner just finished his third season as the offensive coordinator. He has been with the Coyotes for six seasons.
