BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -
College Soccer News recently named Indiana University assistant men's soccer coach Brian Maisonneuve as one of the top-15 assistant coaches in the country.
"Brian has done a great job helping our program earn our eighth title," said head coach Todd Yeagley. "His positive impact is felt in all areas of our program. We are so fortunate to have one of IU's greatest players back helping our program build upon our proud tradition of excellence."
Maisonneuve is in his third season as an assistant at Indiana, joining Yeagley when he took over the program in 2010. During that time the Hoosiers have won a Big Ten title (2010) and a national title (2012), while producing three NSCAA All-Americans and sending six players to Major League Soccer.
Prior to returning to his alma mater, Maisonneuve spent two seasons (2008-09) as an assistant coach at the University of Louisville. From 2004-08 he was an assistant coach with the U-17 U.S. National Team in Bradenton, Fla.
Maisonneuve played alongside Yeagley at Indiana from 1991-94, where he was a two-time All-American and winner of the 1994 Hermann Trophy. A member of the 1996 U.S. Olympic Team and the 1998 U.S. World Cup Team, Maisonneuve had a nine-year career in Major League Soccer, spending all nine seasons with the Columbus Crew.
