Black Hills St., SD Mines name new football coaches


South Dakota's two West River NCAA Division II football programs named new head coaches on Monday.

Black Hills State selected alumnus and former University of Sioux Falls assistant coach Josh Breske to be its new coach, while South Dakota School of Mines and Technology picked Northwest Missouri State co-offensive coordinator Charlie Flohr to be the new coach in Rapid City.

Breske, a native of Pierre, was an All-American offensive lineman for BHSU in the late 2000s, and has been the offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri for the last three years for former USF coach Jed Stugart. Lindenwood just completed its first winning season since 2012. Breske replaces John Reiners in Spearfish, who had coached the Yellow Jackets for eight years.

Flohr, who is a graduate of Dakota State University and is a Wyoming native, has been part of a powerhouse program in Maryville, Missouri, where the Bearcats have made seven national championship game appearances, won four national titles. Flohr would take over for Zach Tinker, who coached Mines for four seasons.

Both teams were 3-8 overall this year, and play in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
