Tellinghuisen stays on as graduate assistant

BROOKINGS – The Jackrabbit men’s basketball program will have a familiar face step into a new role for the 2018-19 season, as head coach T.J. Otzelberger announced Tuesday that Reed Tellinghuisen will serve as the team’s graduate assistant coach for the upcoming campaign.

“We’re thrilled to have Reed join our staff after four successful years as a Jackrabbit,” Otzelberger said. “His knowledge of the program and his well-known work ethic will be a tremendous benefit to our team.”

Tellinghuisen graduated in May 2018 after a four-year career where he started more games and made and attempted more 3-pointers than any Jackrabbit in history. The Sac City, Iowa, native is tied for the school-record in career games played and closed his time at SDSU sitting 11th on the school’s all-time scoring chart as the part of the winningest class in the Jackrabbits’ Division I history, making three consecutive NCAA Tournaments.

“I’m excited for this opportunity at South Dakota State,” Tellinghuisen said. “I’m looking forward to learning from Coach Otzelberger and the rest of the staff as I begin my coaching career.”

He earned his bachelor of science in exercise science from South Dakota State University in 2018 and will be pursuing his masters in sport and recreation administration.
