FORT COLLINS, Colo.--Colorado State cross country Head Coach Art Siemers added a new assistant coach to his 2012 staff, Scott Dahlberg.

"We are so fortunate to have Scott Dahlberg work with the CSU distance runners. He has tons of experience as a multi-time All-American and coach while at Western State College, one of the premiere distance programs in the country," said Siemers.

Dahlberg joins the Colorado State University track and cross country staff this Fall after five seasons coaching at Western State college. He will assist Siemers in cross country and track and field. Scott will also spearhead recruiting efforts in the middle distance and distance events.

While he was an assistant coach at Western State College he helped coach a National Championship cross country team, four Runner-up National Championship cross country teams, four individual National Champions, 76 All-American titles, and an Olympic Trials qualifier. Both men's and women's teams earned "Academic Team of the Year" honors.

Scott is a 2008 graduate of Western State College where he earned five All-America titles between cross-country and track and field after originally attending Western State to play basketball. The two-time cross country All-American lead the Mountaineers to a national runner-up finish in 2007. In his track and field career, Dahlberg placed seventh in the mile and third in the distance medley relay at the 2008 indoor national championships. He finished fourth in the outdoor championships later in the season in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. He continues to train with the Boulder Running Company.

Dahlberg graduated from Western State with honors in mathematics, secondary education, and exercise and sports science.
