BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Entering just his third season coaching for the Hoosiers, Assistant Coach Pat Beemer has been promoted to Associate Head Coach.
"Our program has been fortunate to have quality assistant coaches. None more so than Pat Beemer," said Head Coach Barry King, "This title change is a true reflection of his contribution and duties. We have had an enormous amount of success the last two years coinciding with Pat's arrival. This is one of the few ways I can call attention to the quality of his efforts."
Beemer's first season in Bloomington was more than successful, as he helped the Hoosiers to their second CWPA Eastern Championship. Indiana had an overall record of 26-13, tying the program record for single season wins.
Before coming to Bloomington, Beemer spent six years as head coach at Wagner, where ended with an overall record of 116-89, and 48-16 in the MAAC Conference. In 2010 he earned the MAAC Coach of the Year Award for the second time.
Beemer started at Wagner in 2005 and led the Seahawks to two NCAA Tournament appearances in his first three seasons. He also led Wagner to three MAAC Regular Season Championships.
While there, Beemer coached 11 All-MAAC First Team selections, 12 All-MAAC Second Team selections, 29 MAAC All-Academic honorees, and three All-Americans. In 2010, he coached goalkeeper Kelsey Rodgers, the nation's leader in saves (505) and save percentage (.633).
Prior to all of that, Beemer spent time as the Head Coach of Downey High School in Downey, California, and an instructor at the US Naval Academy Water Polo Camp. Beemer was a goalkeeper for the University of California, San Diego, where he helped the Tritons to a number 7 national ranking.
