BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) -Don Bailey became Montana State's interim head football coach Sunday, two days after head coach Mike Kramer was fired following the latest in a string of arrests involving current and former players.
Bailey was Kramer's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
Athletic director Peter Fields planned to meet with the coaching staff Monday to discuss the program in the aftermath of Kramer's firing Friday. Fields dismissed him two days after former player Rick Gatewood was arrested on drug charges.
``Fields asked me if I would be the interim during the search for a new coach, and I said I would do that,'' Bailey said Saturday. ``Our biggest concern as coaches is that the players understand what is going on. They are in shock right now. There is a lot of confusion about this. The most important thing at this point is to take a deep breath and not to panic about the situation.''
