"He is a really Bright Star "

Coach Prince announces Coach Tim Tibesar will take the reins of the defense as the new Defensive Coordinator. "I think he is a really bright star that is going to shine in this business for a very long time and we are really excited about that...."

Early thursday morning, amoung the influx of new coaches being added to the Wildcat staff, Coach Prince announced that special teams coach Tim Tibesar would be the new Defensive Coordinator for Kansas State. Coach Prince went on to discuss the promotion of Coach Tibesar to Defensive Coordinator.

"Tim Tibesar is a unique guy. Familiar with him since 1999 and we hired him at Cornell....My point is that he is bright, he is articulate, he is smart, hard working and hard charging and he had never been a special teams coordinator before this year. I knew he could do it, he knew he could do it, we knew exactly what we were going to do....and he will do the exact same thing as the Defensive Coordinator."

Although Coach Tibesar has never been a DC, Coach Prince is excited in what he brings to the table. With the Cats excelling in special teams play this year, Coach Prince looks for Coach Tibesar to make his mark on this squad and his personality to shine through.

"Any time you have a chance to be a Coordinator you should have influence on that as well you should and your personality should come out in the players and so his defense's were terriffic in North Dakota and amoung the best each year, they won a national championship there and they have had alot of success and he has been a winner his whole life and he will continue to do so."

"I think he is a really bright star that is going to shine in this business for a very long time and we are really excited about that."
