FARGO, ND: Jason Herter has been hired as the new head coach of the Fargo Force.
This announcement comes on the heels of last week’s news that Fargo Force Head Coach Steve Johnson has left the team to assume duties as assistant coach of the Huskies of St. Cloud State University (Minn.).
Herter was the assistant coach for the Fargo Force’s inaugural season, 2008-09, where he served as assistant coach under Coach Dean Blais.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for my career. I cannot think of a better place to be than right here, right now with the Fargo Force,” says Herter. The Fargo Force finished last season as number two in the USHL. “Without a doubt, we are going for the Clark Cup. We will work extremely hard. We are poised and ready,” adds Herter.
