(WDAY TV) -- Losing a coach to a bigger school is a constant concern at the FCS level. And today, concern met reality at NDSU. Head Coach Craig Bohl confirmed this afternoon that defensive coordinator Scottie Hazelton is heading to USC to work under Lane Kiffin as the team's linebackers coach.

You don't have to look far to figure out why? Hazelton's defense gave up the fewest points per game in all of FCS this season.

His best job may have been in the final two playoff games, allowing 7 points to traditional power Georgia Southern, and 6 points in the National Championship victory over Sam Houston State. Hazelton spent 6 seasons with the Bison program, the last two as Defensive cooridnator and linebackers coach.
