CMU signs volleyball coach Erik Olson to new 5-year contract
A conference championship, NCAA Tournament appearance, five-straight ranked recruiting classes and more than 100 victories has earned Central Michigan volleyball coach Erik Olson a new contract.
The new five-year deal replaces his old four-year contract and will keep him coaching the Chippewas through the 2016 season with a base salary of $85,000.
Olson led CMU to the program’s first Mid-American Conference Tournament Championship and NCAA Tournament appearance in 2011. He also earned career win No. 100 during the season, which ended with a loss in the first round of the NCAA Tournament to eventual runner-up University of Illinois.
The new contract comes off the heels of Olson and his staff’s fifth-straight ranked recruiting class. Olson believes that this incoming class, ranked No. 1 in the MAC, is his best.
During his eight seasons as head coach of the Chippewas, Olson has produced 14 All-MAC selections, nine Academic All-MAC selections, three All-MAC Freshman selections, one MAC Player of the Year and earned MAC Coach of the Year honors once.
