Brooks named women's soccer coach at Union
Thursday, Mar 8, 2012
By Staff    


JACKSON, Tenn. (BP)--Isaac Brooks has been named the new head coach for the Union University women’s soccer team.

Brooks has served as the assistant women’s soccer coach for the last six seasons. He will take over the new position effective immediately.

“We feel very fortunate to have Isaac as head coach for women’s soccer at Union University,” said Jerry Tidwell, Union University's senior vice president for university relations. “Isaac is a man of faith, who has a great capacity for teaching the game of soccer. He served as assistant coach for six years before assuming the head coach position. He now takes over a solidly built, successful women’s soccer program. We believe Isaac is the right coach to prepare our girls to compete at the NCAA Division II level.”

Brooks joined the women’s soccer program in its second season of varsity competition in 2006. During his six years as assistant coach, the program finished in the top half of the conference every season.

The program is coming off its best regular season finish as the team earned a TranSouth regular season co-championship, posting a 12-3-2 overall record and 5-0-1 record in league play.

“I feel that God has called me to spread His word through soccer, so it is an absolute honor to be able to coach for a school that supports me in that mission,” Brooks said. “I could not pick a better school than Union.”

Brooks played three years of soccer at Union University during the early years of the men's program from 1999-2002.
