JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (June 8, 2018) – The ETSU men’s soccer program now has a complete coaching staff, as head coach David Casper announced the promotion of Brad Camp to assistant coach Friday afternoon.
Camp returns for his second season at ETSU after joining last year’s staff as a volunteer assistant.
“First of all, I just want to express how excited I am to be a part of this program, and I want to thank Coach Casper, Scott Carter and Mac Hart for this opportunity and helping me through the transition,” Camp said. “I also want to thank Coach Bo Oshoniyi and Coach David Lilly for this past year at ETSU. I’m excited to join up with Coach Casper and Coach Josh Scott and take this program forward.”
During the ETSU men’s soccer program’s transition to a new coaching staff this past offseason, Camp remained with the program and was instrumental in its progression, essentially serving as the program’s leader upon Casper’s arrival.
“I am really excited to have Brad join the staff in this role,” Casper said. “He did a great job keeping the ship afloat during the transition. The players love him, he has a great reputation and he’s hungry to succeed. I couldn’t be more excited to have him on the team.”
Prior to ETSU, Camp gained experience as an assistant coach at Maryville College and also as head coach for the Knoxville Force of the National Premier Soccer League.
Camp served as the boy’s director for the Alliance Development Centers, working with the Knoxville-based youth club, FC Alliance. He also held a role as an assistant director for Tennessee's Olympic Development Program prior to his promotion.
Camp graduated with a bachelor's degree in Sport Management from Trevecca Nazarene University, where he played from 2007-2009, and also collected a master's degree and Ph.D. from Middle Tennessee State University in the same field in 2012 and 2015, respectively.
Camp currently holds a United States Soccer Federation "B" license, as well as goalkeeping licenses from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.
Camp said this offseason has helped strengthen his relationship with the current roster and anticipates strong results for the 2018 season.
“I’m really excited for our current squad,” Camp said. “We spent a lot of time together training in the Spring and to see their progression has been exciting. We have a lot of potential to build off our success last season and hopefully go beyond that this year.”
