"I’ll be the coach through the season," Delaney said. "I would not have taken the position if there was going to be a change in the summer."

Delaney had coached the Grizzlies for the last four years as the running backs coach before retiring earlier in the year.

The reason for Pflugrad and O'Day's removal has not been publicly stated yet (or ever will be), but it's been spoken about in generalities such as "It was time for a change in direction."

Montana is currently taking part in spring practice.
