Luther football fans better be prepared for a new kind of Norse football this fall.

New Head Coach Aaron Hafner was introduced to the community Friday morning, and if Norse fans learned something, it was that Luther will look different this fall.

Hafner takes over the program after seven years as an assistant coach at William Penn in Oskaloosa. He looks to return a program that went 0-10 last season to glory.

To do that, Hafner plans to make some big changes, starting with the coaching staff. A fourth full-time assistant coach position is being added to the program. In addition, Coach Mike Tangen, who coaches defensive backs, has been moved to a full-time position.
