GRAND FORKS (AP) — Seventy-two people have applied to be the next head coach of the University of North Dakota football team.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that the application period closed Tuesday. The pool of applicants includes people from the NCAA Divisions I, II and III levels and also from the NAIA.

UND also has the option of hiring from outside the pool of applicants. Some coaches don’t want their names linked to the application process if they are still employed at other schools.

Up to five of the people who applied are expected to get on-campus interviews. UND Athletic Director Brian Faison has not said when the school will announce a hiring.

UND is looking for a replacement for Chris Mussman, who was fired last month.
