Montana State fall camp 2021

Six story lines to watch at Montana State 2021 fall camp

on

BOZEMAN, Montana — Replacing one of the most decorated and successful classes in program history is a tall task. Doing it under the direction of a new head coach and new offensive and defensive coordinators adds to that challenge.

That’s what scenario Montana State faces entering Brent Vigen’s first season at the helm. The former North Dakota State and Wyoming offensive coordinator takes the reigns of a team that made its first run to the semifinals of the FCS Playoffs since 1984 during the 2019 season.

Vigen took the job about six months before opening MSU’s first fall camp in the post Jeff Choate era. He brings new coordinators in offensive play-caller Taylor Housewright and defensive play-caller Freddie Banks, although most of the other assistants from Choate’s staff remains.

That change will be accompanied by the race to replace some of the best individual players in the history of Montana State football.
