Yeagley national coach of the year

Soccer America announced the NCAA Division I Men’s Coach of the Year Monday, with the honor going to Indiana’s Todd Yeagley. Yeagley, who led the Hoosiers to their eighth national championship this season, is the first IU coach so honored since his father, Jerry Yeagley, won the award in 2003.

Also honored by Soccer America were sophomore forward Eriq Zavaleta, a first team MVP selection, and freshman Femi Hollinger-Janzen, who was named second team All-Freshman.

    Don’t take a magnet to a Yeagley family reunion, lots of metal in that family.

    Can’t possibly be prouder as an IU fan than with the long run of honor rubbing off on Hoosiers from the Yeagleys. The father (does anyone who knows them dare to call Gerrod ‘the old man’ a living legend in US soccer and intercollegiate athletics history. Add his name to ‘Doc’ Jim Counsilman and Hobie Billingsley in Swimming and Diving and McCracken and Bob Knight in basketball and that;s a lot of legend driving up IND 37. Now add the triumphant return of big ‘Lil’ Todd Yeags …and the legend continues.

    We’re honored Todd. Thanks!!! No need to outdo the ‘old man’, we’ll be happy with catching up with him.
