Coastal Carolina coach Joe Moglia isn't worrying about the breaking football news coming out of North Dakota.

Speaking via email Sunday, Moglia shrugged off any suggestion that North Dakota State may be distracted following reports that Bison coach Craig Bohl is poised to possibly leave the team mid-season to take a job with FBS Wyoming.

CCU faces North Dakota State this Saturday in the quarterfinals of the FCS football championship.

"They have won the last two national championships, have been ranked No. 1 all season and were seeded first in the playoffs," Moglia said. "They will know what to do. They won't miss a beat."

Moglia's comments come after news stories suggesting No. 1 ranked North Dakota State could be facing Coastal Carolina University this Saturday without its head coach at the helm.

The Forum (Fargo, N.D.) newspaper is reporting that NDSU head coach Craig Bohl, who's led the Bison to two consecutive national FCS titles, has abruptly left his position to take a head coaching job at Wyoming, an FBS team that's struggled in recent years.

Fox News and CBS Sports have also reported the story.

Wyoming has called a news conference for 6 p.m. (CDT) Sunday to announce a new coach, and NDSU scheduled a team meeting earlier in the day, according to The Forum report.

According to The Forum, Bohl left the meeting after it concluded and declined to comment.

Several Bison players took to Twitter to express their shock at the news, the newspaper further reported.

In his post-game press conference Saturday, Bohl didn't answer any questions about any future coaching prospects and was cryptic when asked by a North Dakota reporter about the upcoming quarterfinal game against Coastal Carolina.

Bohl only said that he and CCU defensive coordinator Clayton Carlin used to work together at Nebraska. He also briefly addressed the differences in climate between Conway and Fargo, N.D., and also his impressions of Moglia.

"I know it's probably a lot warmer there [at CCU] than it is in Fargo," Bohl said. "I also know that their coach is a billionaire."

According to the NDSU athletic website, the NDSU vs. CCU game is scheduled for 11 a.m. (CDT) and will be televised on ESPN.

The game will be contested at NDSU in the Fargodome. NDSU defeated Furman 38-7 on Saturday.

Coastal Carolina is coming off a 42-35 over No. 4/5 Montana.
