The recruiting landscape in college football has been evolving rapidly within the last ten years. This research focused on the perceptions of recruiting of college football coaches of NAIA universities in rural North Dakota. This research was guided by two research questions: 1. What obstacles do football coaches experience while recruiting for NAIA football programs in North Dakota? 2. What advantages do football coaches have while recruiting for NAIA football programs in North Dakota? To answer these research questions, three NAIA coaches in North Dakota were interviewed. Additionally, 17 NAIA coaches participated in a Likert-style survey. From the qualitative data emerged eight categories and themes, leading to one overarching assertion: Football coaches and recruiters at NAIA institutions in rural North Dakota face a variety of obstacles. Some of those challenges are recruit-centric, while others are institution-centric.
