Fort Collins high school coach Strom takes position at NCAA D-I Michigan State
Michigan State University has announced that Dylan Strom has joined the NCAA Division I program as a volunteer assistant coach for the 2021-22 season.
Strom is an active duty member of the Untied States Air Force and comes to MSU from Colorado, where he has served as a high school head coach. Strom was the head coach at Fort Collins High School for the last three seasons where he compiled a 39-6-3 (.844) regular-season record. He led Fort Collins to the state semifinals in all three seasons he was behind the bench, and to the championship game in 2020 and 2021.
“There is a lot of entitlement in today’s society and in what Dylan is doing, he’s really representing the opposite in how he’s trying to move forward in his coaching career,” Spartans head coach Danton Cole said. “He will bring a very important leadership aspect that will be an outstanding benefit to all of our players.”
Strom worked alongside former University of Denver and current Valor Christian coach George Gwozdecky for two seasons as an assistant with Team Colorado. He served as a head coach in the Colorado Prep Hockey League from 2016-21, where he helped his team earn an invite to USA Hockey Nationals in 2021.
