Merlin Olsen Fund for Football Competitive Excellence 15-16

Our commitment is to build a football program that exemplifies competitive excellence within the Mountain West Conference and beyond.

About the Olsen Fund
Before his passing in March of 2010, Utah State legend Merlin Olsen helped launch the Football Competitive Excellence Fund to support Aggie Football. The program was designed to provide the kind of support necessary in major college football that Aggie Football has never had, including private support for salaries, recruiting and other essential needs of the program. The Olsen Fund was launched in 2008 and has played a major role in key coaching hires, three straight bowl game victories, an MWC Mountain Division championship in 2013, and a conference championship in 2012.
