Chris Olean / Interim Head Coach
Chris Olean enters his first season as the head coach of the University of St. Thomas baseball team. Coach pic Olean was a nine-year assistant coach at St. Thomas under legendary coach Dennis Denning.
Chris was a key member of Denning's staff that has guided St. Thomas to NCAA Division III championships in 2001 and 2009, along with an unprecedented seven straight MIAC conference titles between 2003-2009. During Olean's coaching career with the Tommies, UST has built a 301-98 record and have either won the MIAC regular-season or post-season title in each of the last nine seasons, and reached the NCAA playoffs eight of the last nine seasons.
In 2009, Olean's pitchers recorded a 2.12 ERA in 12 NCAA playoff games and helped the Tommies go 6-0 in elimination games at regionals and nationals. Under Olean, St. Thomas pitchers have led the conference in ERA in eight of his nine seasons, and finished in the top 10 in ERA in the country in four of nine seasons. Olean has also coached two pitchers who have gone on to play professionally along with five All American pitchers.
As a high-school player, the Minneapolis Washburn graduate was a three-time all-conference player, a three-time all-section player, a two-time All Metro team member and a two-time All-State selection. Olean was in the top three in the state in ERA in both his junior and senior year. As a senior, Olean also batted over .400 and led the state in home runs.
As a Tommie, Olean was a three-time All-MIAC selection, a three-time All Midwest Regional selection, and member of the 1999 Division III World Series All-Tournament team. Tommie teams won the MIAC conference title all four seasons and compiled a 152-32 record during his era as a player. In his senior season, the two-time team captain finished second in Division III in ERA (0.60) and finished with 97 strikeouts to only six walks while leading the Tommies to their first ever World Series appearance. He was also named the MIAC Player of the Year and a first team All-American. He finished his career with the modern school career strikeout record (246 Ks in 248 innings), and his 24-8 career mark included a 15-1 record in conference play.
Olean was inducted into the University of St. Thomas Athletic Hall of Fame in 2004.
Olean was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 17th round of the 1999 amateur draft, and spent two seasons in their organization playing in Ogden, Helena, and Beloit (6-1, five saves, 3.50 ERA, one one-hitter). He also played one season with the St. Paul Saints.
Olean also manages in Minnesota amateur baseball with the Miesville Mudhens. Through 2009, the Mudhens have gone 118-52 during his time as a manager and won the 2007 class B state title. Olean has managed multiple Division I players and former professionals in his time with the Mudhens. Olean is also a member of the Mudhens' board of directors and is involved in fundraising events, field improvement and maintenance, as well as player recruitment and retention.
As an amateur player, Olean has won a Class A state championship with the now defunct Glynn Building Products team, and the 2007 Class B state title with the Mudhens. Olean is a six-time all-tournament selection combining both class A and B appearances.
Olean has worked at multiple baseball camps and clinics throughout the state over the last nine years. He has been a speaker at multiple coaches' clinics and has given lessons at Blue Chip Academy, Minnesota Baseball Academy, and Acceleration Minnesota.

Chris Olean is the first person ..., 8 May 2015 [cached]
Chris Olean is the first person to admit that this season has been a struggle for his St. Thomas baseball team.
"This has been nothing short of a challenging year," said Olean, who won his 200th game in his sixth year as St. Thomas coach against 67 losses (.749). "We need as much confidence and consistency as we can get right now. It was exciting to see so many different guys step up today and come through for us."
Olean credited junior southpaw Eric Veglahn for a superb pitching performance that kept the Tommies in the game over the first five innings.
Olean told his team after the game.
Veglahn's dealing has gone on for the last three games. He suffered the only loss of his career April 22 to Bethel when he gave up a grand slam, but he since has been nearly untouchable.
"He crushed it," Olean said of Ziemann's clout.
