McClure, who served as the Red Storm’s defensive coordinator last season after nine years at the same position at Humbodt State University, will be DSU’s third head coach since moving up to Division II from the junior college ranks.

Prior to his time at Humboldt, McClure served as defensive line coach at Southern Oregon University (2002-06) and defensive coordinator at Occidental (Calif.) College (1999-2002). He also had stints as secondary coach and special teams coordinator at the University of San Diego (1997-99) and SOU (1995-96).

McClure replaces Scott Brumfield as the head of the DSU program. Brumfield resigned after six years at the helm of the Storm. He compiled a record of 14-50.
