Former Indiana University standout Chris Munroe joined the IU coaching staff in April 2010. Monroe will serve as a volunteer assistant coach while working on a master's degree in counseling and counselor education.
"I am extremely excited to be back at Indiana University working alongside such knowledgeable and accomplished coaches," Munroe said. "The opportunity to join this coaching staff was one I simply could not pass up due to my love of this university and the soccer program. It was an honor to play here and I consider it an even bigger honor to now step into my new role. College soccer is filled with many successful coaches who have gotten their start here at IU and I am thrilled to join this coaching fraternity. This position comes with a great deal of responsibility and I look forward to working with our players in an attempt to make them the best student-athletes possible."
Munroe comes to Indiana after serving one year as a volunteer assistant under Yeagley at Wisconsin. During that time the former goalkeeper concentrating on working with the Badger netminders while also attending graduate school working toward a Ph.D in Social Psychology.
"We are very excited to have Chris Munroe join our coaching staff," Yeagley said. "Chris left a wonderful mark on our program as an outstanding goalkeeper and academic award winner during his playing days at IU. Now, we are fortunate to have Chris help our staff mold and mentor our current and future student athletes as we embark on a new and exciting chapter in IU Soccer."
A four-year letterwinner for Indiana from 2003-07, Munroe appeared in goal in 30 matches, playing 2570:26 minutes and tallying 16 victories and 11 shutouts. Munroe started all 22 games played in 2005, posting a 13-3-6 record with 10 shutouts and a 0.71 GAA. That season he was also an ESPN the Magazine Academic All-American in 2005 and a four-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree.
