MUNCIE, Ind. -- The Ball State soccer program added Brian Simpson as a volunteer assistant coach this spring. A former player at Anderson University, he brings experience as a coach at the college, high school and club levels.

Simpson most recently assisted at Anderson, where he spent two seasons with the men’s team in addition to working with the women’s team in the spring of 2011.

Prior to joining the staff at his alma mater, Simpson served as the varsity girls’ head coach at nearby Pendleton Heights High School from 2008-11. He guided the Arabians to a pair of Hoosier Heritage Conference championships and was once named the league’s coach of the year.

“We are delighted to have Brian on board,” Ball State coach Craig Roberts said. “He brings a wealth of experience and familiarity, specifically within the region. He is knowledgeable of the game and will provide quality feedback for players in their further development.”

Simpson, who previously served as an assistant at Pendleton Heights, also has experience coaching and directing youth programs with Pendleton FC and Hoosier FC in Noblesville. He is currently the youth director of coaching for Hoosier FC, and he led its under-12 girls’ team to an Indiana Youth Soccer state championship in 2012.

A former elementary school teacher, Simpson is now working on his master’s degree at Ball State in physical education with a coaching specialization.

Simpson earned his bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Anderson in 2007. He is married to Rachel Simpson.
