Isang Jacob, a former member of Indiana Soccer has been named the new Men’s Soccer Head Coach. Jacob spent 16 years making a name for himself at the state, regional, national and international club levels before heading to Happy Valley in 2009. Serving Indiana Soccer, he led the Indy Burn ’90 Eagles to seven straight U.S. Youth Soccer Indiana State Championships from 2002-09. In 2008, all 19 of his players earned athletic or academic scholarships to play collegiate soccer, 17 at the Division I level. He was later tabbed the 2008 Youth Soccer adidas Competitive Coach of the Year.
His passion for teaching the game is clearly evidenced as he’s been a Coaching Education Staff Instructor for Indiana Soccer Association, USSF and NSCAA since 1997 and an NSCAA Associate National Staff Instructor since 2002. His involvement in the Olympic Development Program included serving as the Region II Boys Olympic Development Program Staff Coach from 2001-09 and head coach of the Indiana Olympic Development Program from 1998-08.
