Jayden Olson enters his second season with the Rams' staff, and first as director of basketball operations after spending the 2010-11 season as video coordinator.
Olson spent three seasons as the top assistant coach at Augustana College, helping the Vikings to a 67-26 record during his time in Sioux Falls, S.D. The team qualified for three NCAA Division II regional tournaments while Olson was a part of the program. Olson also helped recruit back-to-back Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Freshman of the Year award winners in 2009 and 2010.
Prior to his arrival at Augustana, Olson spent two seasons (2005-07) as a graduate assistant coach at the University of North Dakota, where he earned his master's degree in kinesiology.
A 2003 graduate of Dickinson State, Olson received his bachelor's degrees in physical education and business education. At Dickinson State, Olson was captain of the basketball team and earned academic All-America honors, and was also a member of the Blue Hawks' golf team.
Olson is single and a native of Beulah, N.D.
Miles on Olson: "Jayden will be a valuable addition to the Rams as our `DOBO.' He is hard-working, very well organized and has tremendous rapport with our players and staff members inside and outside the CSU athletic department. I am looking forward to working with Jayden in this role for CSU basketball."
