Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- For the first time in program history, the St. Scholastica football team took the field for practice on Thursday afternoon without head coach Greg Carlson --- instead the Saints did so with the team's new head coach, Kurt Ramler.
Ramler was introduced this past Monday afternoon as the second-ever head coach in program history, replacing Carlson after he announced his retirement this past January.
He said he still has lots to learn about Saints football, including the names of most of his players, so right now is about staying the course as a program.
"i think keep doing what they're doing. It's working," Ramler said. "Keep working hard in the classroom, keep working hard on the field, and keep working hard off the field. They're great guys, their reputation is incredible. So just really to keep doing what they're doing, and we have to find out who we are going forward for next year."
The Saints last season posted an overall record of (9-2) and qualified for a third straight NCAA Division III tournament.
