Roland hired as North football coach
Fargo North High School now knows who will lead its program when football practices begin in four months.
Roland, 32, is a former prep standout at Wahpeton and also played college football at the University of North Dakota. Roland teaches biology at North.
“It has been something I have always thought of,” Roland said of becoming head coach. “I always wanted to be a teacher and a coach. That has been my life path. I have stuck true and followed that. I was happy being an assistant coach and if that was my calling than that was what I was going to do, but if there was ever an opportunity to be a head coach, it was something I was going to think about.”
North is coming off a 1-8 season last fall and is 6-21 in the last three seasons.
