BSU fires head football coach Tesch
BEMIDJI -- The deposed head football coach at Bemidji State University has been fired, according to his union.
Jeff Tesch, who university administrators placed on paid leave in late August, reportedly received a letter via email Monday afternoon notifying him that he had been terminated, effective at 5 p.m. Tuesday. Tesch’ union -- the Inter Faculty Organization -- has already announced their intentions to file a grievance challenging the university’s decision, and staff there said it could be filed as soon as Tuesday morning.
“I want to thank the Bemidji community for the opportunity to coach this great program for two decades,” Tesch said in a statement. “I want to thank all the players who have touched my life in countless ways. I want to thank the assistant coaches, training staff, field crews, and all the people who put so much effort into making Bemidji State football the top quality program it is.”
