Former Sioux defensive lineman Jeff Richter joins the UND coaching staff this season as an assistant coach. Richter will work primarily with the tight ends, while also helping with film breakdown and scouting of opponents.
Richter graduated from UND in 2008 with a degree in physical education and exercise science. He earned three letters on the gridiron and was a member on the final North Central Conference Championship team in program history in 2006.
Richter comes back to UND after spending the 2010 and 2011 seasons as the tight ends coach at Northern State in Aberdeen, S.D. He spent his first year out of college as an assistant coach in 2009 at Red River High School in Grand Forks.
