I had a nine-year stint as a player and coach at West Virginia University Institute of Technology, where I was the head men’s soccer coach there from 2015-2018. As a player I was a USCAA All-American and held every GK record upon graduation. As Head Coach, I had a 41-16-6 record and guided the team to their first-ever conference championship in 2016 and the program’s first-ever conference tournament championship in 2017. The Golden Bears qualified for the NAIA National Championship every season while I was at the helm, including their first-ever trip to the national tournament in 2015.
My 2016 team advanced all the way to the NAIA National Quarterfinals and finished with the most wins in program history (18). During my tenure in Beckley, West Virginia, I has coached five NAIA All-Americans, 29 Academic All-Conference (KIAC/RSC) selections and 17 All-Conference honorees.
From WVU Tech I moved to Indiana Tech where, as head coach, I amassed a record of 50-12-3. The 2020-21 team tied the school record for wins in a season with 18. The Warriors won a pair of Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) regular season and tournament titles and twice appeared in the NAIA National Championship Tournament.
I earned WHAC Coach of the Year honors following the 2019 and 2020 seasons, and my staff and I were named Region Staff of the Year by the United Soccer Coaches following the 2019 and 2020 campaigns.
My most recent stop was at NCAA DI program Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville (SIUE). I was the 1st assistant coach and we qualified for the MVC tournament.
I am excited to join NCSA and use my experience to help young student athletes find a college soccer program that fits with what they are looking for.
