Assistant coach Colleen Bryan joined the Griffin coaching staff in 2013. Colleen attended Millikin University, in Decatur, Illinois, and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Therapy. Bryan plans to attend graduate school in the fall. Colleen was very successful on and off the field during her four years away at Millikin. She worked hard to achieve many goals, such as: CCIW Batting Champion, hitting .444; All-Conference, All-Region, Best Offensive Player of the Year, and academically, the Dean's list.
"Being a captain for three years taught me that leading a team is crucial to winning, which is why I chose to start coaching", said Bryan.
Colleen, for the last six years, has been coaching the 18U St. Louis Illusions and really enjoys teaching the younger players the fundamentals and techniques of becoming a champion. For Fontbonne, Colleen will mainly work with the outfielders, assist in charting statistics and provide support and confidence to the players.
