“I came here to be a defensive coordinator with the idea of working my way to someday becoming a head coach,” Rubly said. “I'm grateful to get this job, although it was kind of a last-minute deal.”

Rubly remains the Warriors' defensive coordinator, although the head coaching job requires more responsibilities. So far, he's made it work. Aside from having the best record among Oklahoma's four-year, small-college football teams, Bacone was ranked No. 23 at one point this season. It was the first time the program cracked the NAIA's top-25 poll.

“We got off to a slow start, but after a couple of knocks early on, we got on the right road,” Rubly said. “We really got better toward the end. We hope to continue that next season. We are holding some high expectations now.”
