Olson era begins

Andy Olson was introduced as the Shock's new head coach Monday and the 28-year-old addressed several topics of interest (Erik Meyer, Kyle Rowley, Raul Vijil, his coaching staff). Click here for more on Olson and his plans here.

Update: Here's John Blanchette's take.

Crusenberry to remain on Olson’s staff

The Spokane Shock on Sunday confirmed the hiring of Andy Olson as their new head coach and Olson confirmed that line coach Travis Crusenberry will remain on staff.

Majority owner Brady Nelson said a press conference announcing Olson’s promotion from offensive coordinator to head coach will be held Monday. Olson joined the Shock coaching staff as offensive coordinator three games into the 2011 season. Olson replaces Rob Keefe.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun and a ton of hard work, but I’m very eager to get going,” Olson said.

Crusenberry coached for the Shock the last two seasons and also in 2006.
