Cedar Falls, Iowa (WXOW) Former Caledonia star Isaac Fruechte is settling in at Northern Iowa.
The former Minnesota Gopher and Viking has had a bit of whirlwind off season.
He was UW-La Crosse’s co-offensive coordinator last season before accepting the job full time in Janauary.
But then a better offer from northern Iowa came along.
Fruechte accepted a job as the receivers coach for the Panthers, a Division 1 Football Championship Subdivision school.
Fruechte hopes the jump leads to a head coaching job someday.
“You always have a desire to do something great. That’s something where i feel like if I can help people, affect them in a positive way, that would be huge to be a head coach. You get the chance to help a hundred some young men every day in addition to coaches and how ever many people are involved in the program,” Fruechte said.
Northern Iowa is a perennial power in the FCS and qualified for the playoffs last season.
