BOULDER— Shaun Wicen has been named a Recruiting Coordinator and Assistant Coach for the Colorado Buffaloes Cross Country and Track & Field programs, head coach Mark Wetmore announced Wednesday.

He is an excellent fit for our teams and is already making a significant contribution.”

Wicen came to Colorado from Adams State University in Alamosa, Colo., where he served as the sports information director, and also worked at Western State Colorado University in Gunnison, Colo., as an assistant sports information director.  

“Thank you coach Wetmore and Coach Burroughs for the opportunity,” Wicen said. “I’m excited to be a part of this championship culture and help bring more titles to Boulder.”

Wicen covered two national championship cross country teams at Adams State and was named the CoSIDA Fred Stabley Sr. District 7 Blog of the Year for his work with Maricel Medina. 

He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and a minor in statistics from Chadron State College in Nebraska.  His senior season there he served as the interim sports information director and also competed for the Eagles in track & field for three years in the 400-meter dash, 400-meter hurdles and multi-event competitions.
