Apr 27, 2023, 10:50 AM | Updated: 12:03 pm

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.

About Chris Haslam

Haslem played collegiately at the University of Wyoming before embarking on a 13-year pro career overseas. Along with playing for the British national team for ten years, Haslem played in Greece, Italy, Germany, Belgium, the Czech Republic, and Great Britain.

Haslem’s international experience proved a boon in his nine seasons as an assistant at Montana State. In 2021-22, the Bobcats ranked tenth in the nation in Division I international scoring, averaging over 42 points per game.

Was recognized in 2020 by his Big Sky coaching peers as one of the conference’s top-five assistant coaches.
