Alex Ney joined the Bemidji State football program coaching staff in 2021 as the outside linebackers coach. He spent the previous two seasons as a graduate assistant coach at Minot State University.

The 2021 Beaver squad finished 10-3 overall, securing the first 10-win season and NCAA Postseason Tournament victory in program history, thanks in part to one of the top linebacker units in the NSIC. The Beavers ranked 31st nationally and third in the conference in sacks and 40th nationally and first in the NSIC in tackles for a loss. Leading the way were outside linebackers Gabe Ames and Zollie Kaplan who was named All-NSIC First Team selections. 

Ney began his coaching career as the defensive line coach at Minot State in 2020 before moving to linebackers. He was responsible for recruiting Northern Minnesota.

Prior to joining MSU, Ney played at Southwest Minnesota State University as a four-year letter winner as a linebacker during the 2015-18 seasons. In 2017, he was Academic All-NSIC, team defensive captain and named honorable mention All-NSIC South. In 2018, Ney was named second team All-NSIC South and team captain.

Ney graduated from Southwest Minnesota State in 2019 with a bachelor of science in exercise science with an emphasis on coaching and human performance. He is currently attaining a master of science in sport management.
