Before coming to Vallivue, Lundgren was the director of player development for three years at Boise State under head coach Leon Rice.

β€œIn my 20+ years of coaching at the college level, I have met few people that work as hard as Ryan," Rice told KTVB Sports Director Jay Tust. "Ryan will make a great assistant coach at the collegiate level, and I say this without any reservations. He is a natural leader with an infectious personality.”
