He joins Brown, assistant coach David Pearson, and volunteer assistant Kole Zimmerman in a full-time role as the Bison pitching coach.

A native of Bellevue, Wash., Angier began his collegiate playing career at Big Bend Community College, where he saved six games as a sophomore. At SDSU, he had a 2-1 record in 34 appearances over two seasons.

Angier graduated from South Dakota State in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in sociology. He earned a master’s degree in sports pedagogy from South Dakota State in May.
