VERMILLION, SD – South Dakota assistant women’s basketball coach Ryan Larsen was named head women’s basketball coach for South Dakota School of Mines and Technology during a press conference Wednesday. He will start his duties immediately.

Larsen spent the last five seasons with the USD women’s basketball team, helping guide the Coyotes to a 95-63 record and three straight postseason appearances. He will replace Barb Felderman, who coached the Lady Hardrockers for 32 seasons.

“I’d like to thank the entire USD community for five great years both professionally and personally,” Larsen said in a statement. “A special thanks to all the athletes that I have coached, you have made every day enjoyable and memorable.

“South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is one of the few places I would leave USD for and I’m extremely excited for the opportunity to be the head coach of the Lady Hardrockers.”

Before coaching at USD, Larsen graduated from Minnesota State-Moorhead in 2002 and was a member of the Augustana men’s basketball staff from 2002 through 2007. He will coach against USD when the Coyotes play the Lady Hardrockers at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center in Rapid City on Dec. 7.

“Ryan will be missed among the staff, student athletes and community at USD, but we could not be more excited for him achieving his dream of becoming a head coach,” said USD head coach Amy Williams. “School of Mines is fortunate to get a coach of Ryan’s character and knowledge, and we wish both Ryan and the Lady Hardrockers the best of luck.”

South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is an NCAA Division II independent program.
