RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — University of South Dakota assistant women's basketball coach Ryan Larsen has been named head coach at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City.

The Spearfish native succeeds longtime Lady Hardrockers coach Barb Felderman. She led the program for 32 years, won nearly 500 games and took her teams to the NAIA tournament nine times, including Final Four appearances in 1998 and 1999.

Larsen has been a USD assistant the past five seasons. He becomes only the third head coach in the 37-year history of the Mines program.

Mines is in the process of moving to the NCAA Division II level. The school and Felderman last month mutually agreed not to renew her contract.
