The Lincoln Patriots have a brand new head coach and it's a guy that has been around the Sioux Falls area for many years.

Jared Fredenburg, who has been an assistant coach for both Sioux Falls Roosevelt and the Sioux Falls Storm, will take over as head coach for Lincoln beginning with the 2017 season. He has been with the Rough Riders since 2008.

Lincoln finished last season with a 3-7 overall record.
