Van Diest Wins Award, Talks Next Carroll QB

Posted: Updated:

The season may be over, but the accolades keep coming for the Carroll College football team.

The American Football Coaches Association named Mike Van Diest the regional coach of the year on Tuesday, his 5th time winning the award.

KFBB caught up with Van Diest on Monday. While the Saints were unable to capture a 7th national title, the coach says he congratulated his players for having a successful bounce back season after not making the playoffs in 2012.

Van Diest will have most of his key players returning on offense, defense and special teams, but will lose outgoing senior signal caller Dakota Stonehouse. So, the biggest question will be at quarterback, and Van Diest say's the race is "wide open" at this point.

"There's nobody that has an inside track. I told the team yesterday at a team meeting if you're number two on the depth chart that means you're a number two player and you have to earn the spot. Certainly Mac Roche has been a back up to Dakota Stonehouse. I'm sure he has a lot of confidence. We have a lot of confidence in him otherwise we wouldn't have recruit him. But there's JT Linder and Tanner Gustaven. We're going to go out and recruit another Quarterback to come in next year to put in the mix. If Mac's going to win it he's going to have to beat out the other guys. But it's wide open. We do not have a starting quarterback at this point and time."
