the University of South Dakota. A graduate of USD in 1971, Glenn replaces Ed Meierkort, whose contract was not renewed after eight seasons with the program. The Coyotes, who will join the Missouri Valley Conference next season, were 6-5 this season.

He led Montana to a national semifinal win against Appalachian State in 2000. The Grizzlies defeated ASU 19-16 in overtime that year, and reached the national champioship game. They lost to Georgia Southern that season, but the Grizzlies returned in '01 and defeated Furman to win the national championship.
Glenn was inducted into the USD Hall of Fame in 2006, and he coached at WYoming for six years before he was fired in 2008.
