The Beavers were 109-53-18 overall in his nine seasons as head coach.

    The Beavers finished 2018 with a 13-6-3 record and went 9-4-2 in NSIC play, making the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time overall and third time in four years. Minot State returns 12 letterwinners from the 2018 team, including three All-NSIC performers.

The 36-year-old Stefanski was promoted on Dec. 11 to replace John DeFilippo, who was fired in his first season on the job amid persistent struggles by the Vikings in moving the ball. Stefanski was a candidate for the head coach vacancy with the Cleveland Browns, who instead picked their own interim offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens.

     COLLEGE FOOTBALL-NEWS
 
     UNDATED (AP) - Automatic ejections for targeting could be dropped in some cases as early as next season if an American Football Coaches Association proposal is approved by the NCAA Football Rules Committee.
 
     AFCA executive director Todd Berry says there should be Targeting 1, which would carry a 15-yard penalty. Targeting 2 would be for hits with malicious intent and it would mean an ejection as well as the 15-yard penalty.
 
     Rogers Redding, the NCAA's national coordinator of officials, said that because the AFCA proposal concerns player safety, it would go into effect in 2019 if approved.
 
     The targeting penalty was introduced in 2008. It has included automatic player ejections since 2013.
 
     In other college football news:
 
     - Suspended Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence is going to the NFL. The junior lineman became the third defensive starter for Clemson's national championship team to give up their eligibility to turn pro. Lawrence missed Clemson's two College Football Playoff games after he tested positive for the banned substance ostarine.
 
     - Two people familiar with the situation say Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts has entered his name into the NCAA transfer database portal. Putting his name on the list allows other schools to contact Hurts, who has already graduated and is eligible to play his final season as a graduate transfer. It's not a binding decision to transfer. Hurts is a two-year starter who led Alabama to a pair of national championship games and was Southeastern Conference offensive player of the year as a freshman.
 
     - Kansas running back Pooka Williams has been granted diversion in a domestic battery case, meaning he has a chance to keep the allegation off his record. Williams is accused of punching an 18-year-old woman in the stomach and grabbing her by the throat last month.  Diversion allows someone to avoid the usual legal procedures and complete specific requirements, which can include rehabilitation programs or fines.
