Former Hoosier eyes roster spot for 2014 World Cup

With the American sports conscience fixated on South Africa and the 2010 World Cup for the last month, much talk has focused on how the U.S. team can improve upon its quarterfinal finish when the event moves to Brazil in 2014. And former IU standout and current member of the New England Revolution Kevin Alston hopes he’ll occupy a roster spot on the American team should it qualify for the 2014 World Cup.

Yeagley: ‘Plenty to fix’ in 1-1 stalemate

The IU men’s soccer team remained undefeated for the spring Wednesday, though not in the manner it would have liked. Twenty-two shots converted to just one goal for the Hoosiers, who went to 1-0-2 during the spring season with a 1-1 tie in two overtime periods against IU-Purdue University Indianapolis.

IU’s 2nd spring game brings position swaps

New IU men’s soccer coach Todd Yeagley couldn’t be happier being back at his alma mater. “Every day, I kind of step back from what I’m doing and say, ‘I have the best job in college soccer,’” he said. “I’m very fortunate.” And if the beginning of the spring season is any indicator, the new era of Hoosier soccer is progressing well.

After years on the sidelines learning from his father’s head coaching techniques, new IU coach Todd Yeagley will take the field for the first time as the leader of one of the nation’s premier soccer programs.

Recruits agree - Yeagley right for job

Todd Yeagley is his father’s son – and that’s a problem for some IU fans. The son of IU legend Jerry Yeagley took the reins of the IU men’s soccer program under questionable circumstances, if you ask some members of Hoosier nation. A commenter on the IDS Web site claimed that the younger Yeagley was hired “not for experience or talent, but his name and thanks to Daddy.”

Yeagley brings star-studded recruits to IU

IU soccer has a new coach and a new class but the same game plan: Win championships. Joining the ranks of over 400 members of the IU men’s soccer family is the 2010 class: Kerel Bradford, Ryan Bristol, Jacob Bushue, Nikita Kotlov, Dylan Lax, Matt McKain, Harrison Petts, Taylor Reeves and Blake Wise. “This is a very talented group that I feel can make a positive impact in the program,” IU coach Todd Yeagley said. “The 2010 class will certainly give us a big boost moving forward.”

Jerry Yeagley: "I could have done the Bobby Knight thing and just anointed him and made him the coach. I didn’t do that. I kept my word to Coach Freitag."
