The Spokane Shock have agreed to terms with Shock Defensive Coordinator Travis Crusenberry and Defensive Back's Coach Stanley Franks to return to Head Coach Andy Olson's Staff for the 2013 season.

Travis Crusenberry was a member of the ArenaCup Championship Coaching Staff in 2006 under Chris Siegfried. The following season, Crusenberry left the af2 to join the AFL's Kansas City Brigade as Offensive Line Coach and Director of Player Personnel for two seasons. As the Director of Player Personnel, he helped to create a roster that gave the Brigade its first playoff berth in franchise history and its best record (10-6). 2010 marked Crusenberry's return to the AFL and to Spokane. Under Head Coach Rob Keefe, he captured his first ArenaBowl Championship and molded one of the top offensive lines in the AFL. In 2011, he served as the Offensive and Defensive Line Coach before assuming the Defensive Coordinator role for the 2012 season. By re-joining the Coaching Staff for the 2013 season, Crusenburry will enter his fourth season with the Shock.

"Travis Crusenberry brings a wealth of experience to our Coaching Staff as a former player, Director of Player Personnel, and Assistant Coach with line, defense, and special team backgrounds. His ability and understanding of on-field play as well as his experience in scouting and recruiting athletes to Spokane is a tremendous asset to our Organization and we are excited that he will be returning in 2013," said Shock General Manager Ryan Rigmaiden.

Former Shock defensive back Stanley Franks was added to Head Coach Olson's staff in Fall 2011. In 2010 with the CFL's BC Lions, Franks recorded 70 tackles with three interceptions. His second season with the Lions was cut short after he suffered a season-ending leg injury. Franks burst onto the Arena Football in 2009 and was a key role in Spokane's ArenaCup Championship season. That season he led the team in tackles (97.5) adding eight interceptions with 17 pass break-ups. At the University of Idaho in 2006, Franks led the nation in interceptions per game with an average of 0.75 and had nine interceptions in 12 games earning first-team all-WAC recognition. While in Junior College, he earned all-American and all-state recognition with 62 receptions for 778 yards and eight touchdowns.

"Stanley Franks is a true players Coach. His ability to relate to our players from his own experience in NCAA D-1A, CFL, and Arena Football is a great addition to our Staff. We're looking forward to the opportunity of having Stanley back with us in 2013 and are eager to see him to contribute as a Defensive and Special Teams Coach with us next season," said Head Coach Andy Olson.
