Ross Cimpl hasn’t been a head coach for more than a few months, but him and his staff have the Dakota Wesleyan program getting after it. Cimpl was promoted from interim head coach / defensive coordinator to the head coaching position back in January. 

For Cimpl, the off season is all about creating a type of mindset. “We’ve been in third and short, we’ve been in fourth and short. We can handle it! We know how to operate in those situations, but you have to train yourself constantly to be that guy. You’ve got to get it in your mindset that all of a sudden ‘Hey it’s third and one…I’ve been here before’ “.
