Former Rams standout Bri Frech spent four seasons (2008-11) as an assistant coach at Colorado State. Frech joined the staff full-time after spending the 2007 season as the Rams' video and statistics coordinator.
Her duties included scouting and video analysis, as well as on-court coaching of serving, passing and defense. She played a supporting role in recruiting, as well. Frech also handled many of the operations elements of the program.
Frech first joined the Rams as a player in 2003 after spending her freshman and sophomore years at Salt Lake City Community College. In the 2003 and 2004 seasons, Frech was a consistent starter for the Rams, earning all-Mountain West and all-tournament honors while leading her team to NCAA bids in both years and a combined 56-9 record. In Frech's senior season, the Rams were ranked as high as No. 9 nationally. Frech was a rare "six rotation" middle blocker because of her exceptional serving and passing ability.
In 2005, Frech served as a student-assistant for the Rams while completing her degree. She then played professionally in France for MVS La Rochette during the 2006 season. Her club finished second in the French league that year. Frech returned to Fort Collins in 2007 to pursue a career in coaching.
A native of Eschwege, Germany, she received a bachelor of science degree in business administration from CSU in 2005. She is married to Charlie Olmstead and resides in Fort Collins, Colo.
