Trio of Titan Grads Hired in Athletics

Aug. 21, 2007

Fullerton, Calif. - Three Cal State Fullerton graduates with extended ties to the university have been appointed to posts this week in the Titans' department of intercollegiate athletics.

Former Titans' wrestler and graduate assistant coach (2006-07) Risto Marttinen is the new assistant wrestling coach, former baseball and softball administrative assistant Dara Fielden is the new administrative assistant to Director of Athletics Brian Quinn and former soccer player and marketing graduate assistant Kellie Cox has been appointed to the new position of marketing and spirit squad coordinator.

Marttinen will assist sixth-year Head Coach Dan Hicks, for whom he wrestled four of his five years (2001-02 thru 2005-06) in the program, all as the regular at 165 pounds. His career record was 53-65 including a 21-13 mark as a senior. Marttinen won the team's academic award all five years and in 2004-05 he was Cal State Fullerton's male scholar-athlete of the year. Four times he won Pac-10 academic honors.

A native of Lappeenranta, Finland, and a product of Dana Hills High School, Marttinen has dual U.S. and Finnish citizenship. In December, he placed fifth in the Finland national wrestling tournament at 163 pounds.

Fielden assumes her full-time post on Aug. 27. She worked part-time as an administrative assistant to baseball and softball from 2000 through early in the 2007 season. She replaces Ann Cornaggia.

Cox was a five-year (2001-05) member of the Titans' women's soccer program, missing the 2003 season due to an opening-day injury. She won All-Big West Conference honors four times, including Midfielder of the Year in 2004 and Co-Offensive Player of the Year in 2005. In 2006 she was a volunteer assistant coach and later was a graduate assistant in the athletics marketing office. She will assist with marketing and promotions at all home events and also coordinate appearances by the cheerleaders and national champion dance team.

Both Fielden and Cox are working on masters degrees on campus.
