Wednesday afternoon, IU women’s soccer announced the hiring of Sandy Davidson as assistant coach.

Davidson will be replacing Michael Regan, who took the head coach position at North Dakota State.

“I am extremely excited and honored for the opportunity to join Indiana Women’s Soccer in their quest for continued excellence in the classroom, and success in the Big Ten Conference,” Davidson said in a press release with IU athletics. “I look forward to getting to Bloomington to start within the department, the team, and the community. I would like to thank Amy Berbary and Senior Associate Athletic Director Stephen Harper for this incredible opportunity and I am very excited to be a Hoosier.”

Davidson spent four years as an assistant coach at Washington State.

She helped lead the Cougars to a 42-28-10 record as well as a Sweet 16 appearance last season. Davidson was a volunteer assistant coach at Louisville before heading over to Washington State.

Her first collegiate coaching job was at University of North Carolina at Greensboro when she was an assistant coach in 2011.

“Sandy will be an incredible addition to our staff this spring,” IU Coach Amy Berbary said in a press release with IU athletics. “Her wealth of knowledge and wide range of experience within the game of soccer can only help us grow as a team to reach our goals of earning a spot in the Big Ten Tournament and NCAA’s. Her passion to grow, teach and learn will have an immediate impact on our staff and most importantly, on our student-athletes.”
