Head Coach Troy Odegaard
Troy Odegaard was named the head women's basketball coach on April, 18, 2002.
Odegaard, a native of Brookings, S. D., served as the assistant coach for the Cobbers for the previous two seasons.
Odegaard was the boy's assistant varsity coach at Lincoln Southeast High school in Lincoln, Neb. during the 1999-2000 season before he joined the Cobber staff. Prior to coaching at Southeast High he was an assistant coach for the men's team at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln from 1997-1999. He was part of the coaching staff that led the Cornhuskers to a NCAA tournament appearance in 1998 and the NIT tournament in 1999. Odegaard was also a graduate assistant and assistant coach for the South Dakota State men's team from 1995 - 1997. He received his undergraduate degree from Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, S.D. in 1986 and his master's degree from SDSU in Brookings, S.D.
He expressed his optimism and excitement by stating, "I am grateful for the opportunity to continue the tradition of Cobber women's basketball, and look forward to coaching the players on this team."
"I think the community of Concordia College has a wonderful atmosphere to grow as an individual, a coach and mentor and also a terrific place to raise a family."
Concordia athletic director Dr. Armin Pipho explained the decision by saying, "Troy has demonstrated a commitment to the mission of our college, has the knowledge and passion for the game and provides important continuity to the program. I am excited about the new leadership for women's basketball at Concordia."
Along with his basketball coaching duties, Odegaard serves as the head men's golf coach and teaches in the Health and Physical Education department.
Troy lives in West Fargo with his wife Julie and children Aubrie, Jacoby and Mercede.
