Dave Nielsen enters his 28th season as the head track and field coach at Idaho State University with a program that continues to grow stronger each year. While Nielsen is well known for having coached Olympic Champion and World Record Holder Stacy Dragila, she is far from the only standout that has come through the ISU program over the last 27 years. Nielsen has helped 21 athletes to All-American status during his tenure at ISU, including 12 in the last five years. Forty-five athletes have advanced to the NCAA Championships, 163 have won Big Sky titles and 391 have earned all-conference recognition.
