Yeagley Named National Coach of the Year
January 18, 2000
Indiana University men's soccer head coach Jerry Yeagley was named the 1999 NSCAA/adidas National Coach of the Year. This is the fifth time that Yeagley has won the award as he also earned the honor in 1976, 1980, 1994 and 1998. No other collegiate head coach has won the award more than once.
This season Yeagley led the Hoosiers to their fifth national championship, and second straight, as Indiana posted a 21-3 mark and defeated Santa Clara 1-0 in the championship game.
"I am honored. This award is a reflection of our staff and the great team that we had this season. I accept this award on behalf of the university and all of the people who work with our program," Yeagley said.
The coach of the year announcement comes in the wake of senior
forward Aleksey Korol being named Soccer America's 1999 national
player of the year and by Indiana's dominance of the magazine's
all-century collegiate team. Former Hoosiers, Angelo DiBernardo,
Armando Betancourt and Ken Snow were named to the all century
