NDSU head football coach Craig Bohl was elected to the American Football Coaches Association board of trustees by members attending the association’s 2012 convention in San Antonio. He was elected along with Northwestern University head coach Pat Fitzgerald, Southeast Missouri State University head coach Tony Samuel and California University of Pennsylvania head coach John Luckhardt.
The board formulates policy and provides direction for the association, which was founded in 1922 by Amos Alonzo Stagg, John Heisman and others. It has more than 11,000 members from all levels of the profession.
Bohl replaces 2011 American Football Coaches Association president Rob Ash of Montana State University, who completed his term on the board this year.
