"Having Jason able to join our staff is amazing. He is a true ODU Monarch through and through. He represents what a Monarch Student-Athlete should be and will be a great asset as the program transitions. We all are excited about the future with Jason on our side and just as excited to watch him get his post playing career started. We are thankful that he is doing it with us."
