LOGAN, Utah – When Ryan Odom accepted the head coaching job at VCU, it was assumed some of his coaching staff would follow him to Richmond.

Ultimately, three of Odom’s Aggie assistants followed him east, leaving several open spots on Danny Sprinkle’s Utah State coaching staff. Bryce Crawford and Matt Henry each worked with Odom at UMBC, before venturing to Utah State and eventually VCU. Darius Theus played for VCU from 2009-13.

Nate Dixon, who served as USU’s interim head coach after Odom’s departure, remains listed on the men’s basketball webpage as an assistant coach, though his future with the program is presently undetermined.
