BHSU’s Erickson Adds Alvin Nyangau As Assistant Coach

Head Black Hills State University women’s basketball coach Rachel Erickson has added Alvin Nyangau to her staff as her assistant coach.

“We are elated to be adding Alvin to the Yellow Jacket family. He has valuable experience coaching in the RMAC with great recruiting ties throughout the Midwest and beyond,” noted Erickson. “I could not be more excited to get started with Alvin and for the BHSU community to get to know him.”

Prior to coming to BHSU, Nyangau spent a season at Western Colorado University under head coach Adam Jacobson. While at WCU, he oversaw the Mountaineer offense and coached Second Team All-RMAC performer Rachel Cockman and Honorable Mention Ivey Schmidt.

Prior to his time at WCU, he spent a season as an assistant coach at Northern State (S.D.) under head coach Paul Krueger. The 2022-23 season saw the Wolves go 18-12 (12-10 NSIC) with a trip to the NSIC semifinals, after a Quarterfinals win over Upper Iowa. The team also led the NCAA Division II ranks in least turnovers committed per game.

He has also spent time with the North Dakota State men’s basketball program and served as the graduate assistant and assistant coach at Upper Iowa University.

“Thank you to Coach Erickson for allowing me to be a part of her homecoming,” said Nyangau. “I am thrilled to be returning to the State of South Dakota and joining the strong basketball tradition at Black Hills State University.”

Nyangau holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Sport Management from North Dakota State, where he served as a student-manager for the Bison women’s basketball program. He also has a Master’s degree in Sport Administration from Upper Iowa.
