SDSU Assistant Football Coach Resigns



BROOKINGS, S.D. – South Dakota State University head coach John Stiegelmeier announced Thursday that co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Jay Bubakhas submitted his resignation and will pursue other professional opportunities outside of coaching.  The longest-tenured assistant on Stiegelmeier’s coaching staff, Bubak joined the Jackrabbit football program in 2005 as defensive coordinator and linebackers coach. From 2007-10 he coached the defensive backs before returning to coach the linebackers in 2011. SDSU compiled a 54-38 record in his eight seasons, winning the Great West Football Conference title in 2007 and qualifying for the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs in both 2009 and 2012. The 2012 squad tied a school record with nine victories and recorded its first-ever playoff victory with a 58-10 defeat of Eastern Illinois.   A search to find Bubak’s replacement will begin immediately.
