Rocky's Petrino Excited to Bring Experience to Bears' Defense

Posted: Updated:

This season will be a bit of an adjustment for coach Jason Petrino as the takes over as a head coach for the first time in his career. The Kalispell native has been a defensive coordinator for nine of the past 11 seasons. Most recently he spent the past four seasons as University of South Dakota defensive coordinator, where this past season he led the Coyotes to the eighth best scoring defense in the country, and he hopes to have the same effect as a head coach at Rocky. 

"It's really important to kind of hold back, and making sure that our kids know what they, and what we as coaches know they can do and execute at a high level, and then give them the necessary tools to execute and do those things, and the preparation part, as you're playing your opponents," said Petrino.
