Former Britton athlete Dan Musielewicz was promoted to head coach at Olivet College this week, following five seasons as the offensive and recruiting coordinator.
Before coming to Olivet, Musielewicz served as the wide receivers coach at Trine (Ind.) University from 2006-11. During his time there, the Thunder won three consecutive Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) championships. Trine also made three straight trips to the NCAA Division III Playoffs, advancing as far as the second round in 2009 and 2010.
Musielewicz played football for Britton-Deerfield, being named a first team All-TCC wide receiver in 1998 and 1999. The Patriots won the TCC title both of those seasons and advanced to the state semifinals in 1999.
Prior to joining the Trine staff, Musielewicz was an assistant football and basketball coach at Tecumseh High School for one year. He earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education, physical education and integrated science from Hillsdale College in 2005. While there, he played four years of football at receiver and one year of basketball for the Chargers.
Musielewicz earned a master’s degree in coaching and athletic administration from Concordia (Calif.) University in May 2012.
He lives in Quincy with wife, Darcie, and daughter, Kendyl, and son, Davin.
Among the other members of the Olivet coaching staff is Nick Galvan who was an assistant coach at Madison in 2014.
