Butte, Mont. - Montana Tech announced today that Chuck Morrell is the new head football coach of the Orediggers. Morrell comes to Montana Tech from the University of South Dakota where he served as defensive coordinator. Previously to that, he was the defensive coordinator for the University of Sioux Falls from 1998-2009.
Morrell played defensive back for Sioux Falls from 1995-97 and led the 1996 NAIA Division II national championship team with 82 tackles. The Bon Homme, S.D., native, who also played linebacker at South Dakota for two years (1993-94), is well known for his 3-4 defense. In fact, Morrell has two DVDs for sale on various web sites about dominating with the "up-tempo 3-4 defense."
Morrell replaces the recently retired Bob Green who spent 24 seasons as head coach of the Diggers.
