The Roosevelt Rough Riders have found their new defensive coordinator, and it's someone that's familiar to Sioux Falls.

Sources have told me, and confirmed through Roosevelt head coach Kim Nelson, that Ed Whiting has been hired as the new defensive coordinator at Roosevelt. Whiting will join Nelson's staff starting with the 2017 season. He replaces Jared Fredenburg, who is now the new head coach at Lincoln High School.

Whiting has been a long-time assistant coach with O'Gorman under Steve Kueter. He was the lone assistant to stay with O'Gorman under new head coach Jayson Poppinga last season.
