Grand Forks, ND (NNCNOW.com) --- Former University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) head football coach Kyle 'Bubba' Schweigert started fall camp with his new team over the weekend, that being the University of North Dakota (UND).

Schweigert held his first practices of the 2014 season on Saturday and the school conducted media day on Monday, with the former Bulldogs boss saying his guys will focus on the process this year and not the outcome.

"We've got to grind away and keep grinding and keep grinding, and then we'll determined what the record is at the end of the year," Schweigert said. "We're not giving this day-by-day thing lip service. We are going to look at it every day as did we get better or did we get worse."

Schweigert spent four seasons as UMD head coach, collecting a record of (22-21) that included an (8-4) 2005 season in which the Bulldogs won a share of the North Central Conference (NCC) and qualified for the NCAA Division II Tournament.

Before being named head coach at UND, Schweigert had been the associate head coach and defensive coordinator at Southern Illinois. He also has 15 years experience with UND, having worked in various assistant roles with that program before going to UMD.
