|Bob Majeski, who came to
Black Hills State University four years ago as defensive
coordinator for Coach Russ Martin, will be taking over
his mentor's job as the Yellow Jacket's head football
Martin submitted his resignation earlier in the
week to accept a position as offensive coordinator at
NCAA Division I AA Southeast Missouri State in Cape
Majeski came to the Yellow Jacket program from Kansas
Wesleyan University, Salina, Kan., were he served as
defensive coordinator for Coyote football team from 1991
to 1996. Prior to coaching at KWU, he served as an
assistant coach at Kearney State College, Kearney, Neb.,
Trinity Valley Community College, Athens, Texas; and
Rocky Mountain College, Billings, Mont.
Athletic Director Dave Little, said, Given the
late date of Coach Martin's resignation we are fortunate
to have on our staff an assistant coach with the
enthusiasm and ability to take charge of the program. His
knowledge of the system, his role in recruiting efforts
and most importantly the confidence the players have in
his ability were significant factors in naming him head
coach. He brings a continuity to the program that will be
a valuable asset to the program's success as we make the
move to the DAC-10 Conference this fall.
Coach Majeski said, I'm ecstatic; It's something
I've worked for several years. I am just thankful for the
opportunity to direct the program.
The new coach says he plans to work within the system
that the present coaching staff has established. The
players recruited this spring were recruited to fit the
current game plan.
Back to Campus
do plan to emphasize the running game a little more, but
we'll stay within the multiple-set formation
concept, he said. We plan to play a good
brand of hard-nosed football and be as good as we can
possibly be. If we do that, the win's and loses will take
care of themselves.
Majeski will be looking for an additional assistant
coach, but isn't ready to make an announcement at this
time. He expects to look at candidates with good
character who are also good coaches.
Looking at next season he is reasonably optimistic
about the Yellow Jackets chances in the new conference.
The key is continuity in the program, he
said. We have that and a promising group of
newcomers to bolster our chances.
