San Francisco's Chris Rodd became the first collegian to sign a pro contract since the end of the college soccer when the All-WCC defender inked a three-year contract to play for Bryne Fotballklubb, a Norwegian second-level pro team.

"It's a dream come true," Rodd said. "I was fortunate to have things happen this way. To get seen during my college days and to be signed by Bryne is amazing."

Bryne General Manager Frode Olsen attended the Dons' final matches of the season. Rodd is reported to have signed a deal worth an annual six-figure salary.

Rodd looks to make an impact right away with his new club.

"[Bryne] has two center backs in their 30s right now and they have a new coach who's going to change the team's style of play," Rodd said of his possible role for Bryne, which finished sixth in the Adeccoligaen, which ended in November.

After transferring from William and Mary prior to his junior year, Rodd played in all 38 USF matches earning 2007 All-West Coast Conference first-team and 2006 WCC second-team selections.
