FARGO — Former North Dakota State assistant football coach Brent Vigen was named the head coach at Montana State last February, returning to the Division I FCS level after spending seven seasons at the FBS level as the offensive coordinator at Wyoming.

Vigen was the Bison coaching staff for program's first three Division I FCS national championships in 2011, 2012 and 2013 before heading to Wyoming with former NDSU head coach Craig Bohl.

Vigen, from Buxton, N.D., discussed the potential of the Bobcats program, the FCS landscape and dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Montana State decided to opt out of the spring season, before Vigen was hired, to prepare for the 2021 fall season.

Vigen played tight end for the Bison from 1993-1997. Watch the roundtable discussion below:
