BEMIDJI – Bemidji State football defensive coordinator Jamie Bisch has been named the associate head coach and defensive coordinator at Eastern New Mexico University. He joins the Greyhounds after serving the past four years as defensive coordinator at BSU.

Bisch joined BSU’s coaching staff as defensive coordinator prior to the 2018 season. Since he joined the program, Bemidji State has compiled a record of 25-10 with at least seven wins in each season. The Beavers took a step forward in 2021 by qualifying for the NCAA Division II postseason and advancing to the second round behind a 28-24 win at No. 25 Augustana.

The 2021 “Gang Green” defense ended its season with 37 sacks (15th in the nation) and 24 takeaways (24th in the nation). Bisch has coached 18 All-NSIC student-athletes, three all-region members and two All-Americans.

Bisch, along with his wife, Tarrah, and sons Ezra and Simeon, will move to Portales, N.M., to join Eastern New Mexico as part of the Lone Star Conference in NCAA Division II.
