Don Olson remembers sneaking into Public Schools Stadium in the 1950s to watch high school football games.
A few years later, he shagged home runs beyond the left-field fence at Wade Stadium.
Now Olson is returning home for what he called a "chance-of-a-lifetime opportunity" by taking the St. Scholastica athletic director's position, the college announced Wednesday. Olson, the winningest men's hockey coach at St. Mary's University in Winona, Minn., is ending his 32-year association with the Cardinals to take the Saints' job.
Olson learned of the opening from Saints' hockey coach Mark Wick.
"I wasn't looking to leave, but this job just caught my attention and pulled me in," said Olson, 58. "I've been asked many times, 'Why now and why here?' Those are very good questions, but the more I looked at it and researched it, the more excited I got. I was just extremely impressed with the entire culture and department. So to answer those questions, I'm interested because it's St. Scholastica, and certainly, part of the pull is because it's Duluth."
Olson said the Saints' position is only the second job he has applied for in 32 years.
Olson and his wife, Linda (Ion) Olson, are Duluth Denfeld graduates and have many relatives in the area.
