Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Earlier this week, Jason Herter left his job as head coach and director of hockey operations for the USHL's Fargo Force to become an assistant coach under UMD's Scott Sandelin.

Now, another member of the Force is also headed to the Bulldogs.

The USHL announced Thursday that Austin Farley has committed to play his college hockey for the defending NCAA national champions.

The 17-year-old Farley played in 33 games last year in his rookie year for the Force, scoring 11 points. With the commitment, he joins Fargo teammate Willie Corrin, who has already committed to the Bulldogs.

UMD has 14 former USHL players on its roster in 2010-2011, when the team won its first NCAA national championship in program history.
