BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -
Indiana University head men's soccer coach Todd Yeagley has been tapped as one of four head coaches for the 2012 Major League Soccer Player Combine, January 11-15 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
Yeagley will lead the Prime squad, with the makeup of that team still to be determined. Indiana standouts goalkeeper Luis Soffner and forward Eriq Zavaleta will be taking part in the Combine.
"I am really excited to go down to the MLS Combine in Florida and work with some of the best players in the country," Yeagley said. "I will certainly see some old friends that I was able to play with, and against. It should be a great week of soccer and I am honored they invited me down to work with our nation's best."
Yeagley just completed his third season as head coach at his alma mater leading Indiana to a 16-5-3 record and the program's eighth national title. The Hoosiers are 39-17-10 under Yeagley, with a 2010 Big Ten title to go along with their national championship.
Yeagley spent the 2009 season as head coach at Wisconsin, and from 2004-08 was an assistant coach for the Hoosiers. Yeagley had a seven-year career in Major League Soccer with the Columbus Crew, playing in 138 matches and making 113 starts. He also served as assistant general manager for the Crew in 2002.
