South Dakota State head football coach John Stiegelmeier announced the hiring of Andre Crenshaw to the Jackrabbits’ offensive coaching staff.

“I am really excited to add Andre to our staff as our running backs coach. I am equally excited to add his wife and son to our SDSU Football Family,” Stiegelmeier said. “Andre is a proven coach with running backs and special teams. I look forward to seeing the impact he has, not only on the field, but off the field, as well.”

Crenshaw most recently served as running backs coach at Southeast Missouri State during the 2020-21 season, helping lead the Redhawks to a 4-4 overall record.

Prior to his return to the FCS ranks, Crenshaw spent two years as the running backs coach and special teams coordinator at Missouri Western. The Griffons averaged 219.5 rushing yards per game in 2018 to rank in the top 25 among Division II programs.

Other coaching stops have included Tennessee Tech (2017) and Morehead State (2015-16). He began his collegiate coaching career as a graduate assistant at Dakota Wesleyan and also coached at Riggs Football Academy in Sioux Falls.

A native of Lancaster, California, Crenshaw played running back at Oregon for four seasons from 2006-09. He earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology from the Oregon in 2010 and added a master’s degree in educational policy and administration from Dakota Wesleyan in 2015.
