Friday, June 29, 2007

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (June 29, 2007) - ETSU women's soccer head coach Heather Henson recently announced that Andy Stoots has been promoted to the position of associate head coach.  

 

Stoots joined the Buccaneers in 2004 and has spent the past three seasons assisting Henson in all facets of running the program with a focus on goalkeeper training.

 

"Andy is a tremendous young coach. He is dedicated to the program and puts in limitless hours into ETSU soccer. After only three years with me, I truly feel Andy deserves this new title. He helps tremendously in every facet to maximize the program to its fullest potential. I am glad that we were able to make this change," said Henson.

 

Prior to ETSU, Stoots served as an assistant coach for the Troy State women's soccer program, helping them improve to a 9-9-0 finish from a 4-14-1 record the previous year. As the team's goalkeeping coach, Stoots helped guide Troy State's goalkeepers to their lowest goals-against average in the program's history. He also assisted the team to improve academically with his implementation of an academic success plan that contributed to 12 players with over a 3.0 GPA. Stoots' duties also included recruiting and planning travel.

 

In 2002, Stoots served as an assistant coach for the men's and women's soccer programs at Milligan College. While there he helped lead the Lady Buffs to a berth in the Region XII Finals and guided their goalkeeper to All-America honors.

 

From 2002-2003, Stoots was the head director of goalkeepers and a staff coach in the Tri-Cities Force Soccer Club. During that time, he also served as a staff goalkeeper coach for Tennessee's Olympic Development Program. Stoots holds an NSCAA Advanced National Coaching Diploma and has taught the goalkeeping section of the USSF D' coaching course. 

 

In addition to his coaching experience, Stoots played as a goalkeeper at Milligan for four seasons, serving as team captain his junior and senior seasons. He helped lead the team to a 15-7 record in 2001, setting a school record for wins. Stoots also holds individual honors at Milligan for career shutouts, career goals against average, and wins.

 

"This year has been an exciting time for ETSU Soccer. We are completing our new soccer stadium, beginning a new men's soccer team and a commitment to the women's team with Andy's new title," added Henson.
