By all accounts, the search is over.
Alumni sources with knowledge of the search told the Press & Dakotan on Saturday night that the University of South Dakota is expected to name Glenn as the school’s new head football coach today (Monday).
At least one football player had heard the rumor, when reached Saturday night, but as of Sunday afternoon, nothing official had been released by the school.
Sources previously told the Press & Dakotan that USD athletic director David Sayler flew out to meet with Glenn last week.
The 62-year-old Glenn will replace former coach Ed Meierkort, who was fired Nov. 22.
Glenn, a 1971 USD graduate, has spent 24 years as a head coach with stops at Doane (1976-79), Northern Colorado (1987-99), Montana (2000-02) and Wyoming (2003-08). He won a pair of Division II national championships at Northern Colorado (96-97) and guided Montana to a Division I-AA (now FCS) title in 2001.
A native of Lincoln, Neb., Glenn — now living in Phoenix, Ariz. with his wife, Michelle — has been serving as an analyst for the WAC Sports Network the past two seasons.
Glenn, who has an overall coaching record of 188-100-1, was inducted into the USD Hall of Fame in 2006.
