College football: Veidt steps down at Bluffton, takes job at Toledo

BLUFFTON — Bluffton University is in search of its next head football coach.
Tyson Veidt, the head coach since 2008, has accepted the position of linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Toledo.
Veidt compiled a 20-40 overall record in six seasons with the Beavers, and a 17-29 mark in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference play. The 2012 squad finished the season at 6-4, giving Bluffton its first winning season since 2000 when the Beavers were HCAC co-champions.
Associate head coach Lou Stokes will take control of the program during the coaching search. Stokes, who served for 18 seasons before taking a two-year break, returned to the football program six seasons ago to work with the offensive line and serve as the team’s director of academic success and associate head coach.
Stokes’ coaching experience includes head coaching roles at Ottawa-Glandorf and Bucyrus high schools and as a coordinator at Celina High School.
