Greg Brisbon has been named the new head men's soccer coach at Western Washington University, Director of Athletics Lynda Goodrich announced today.
Brisbon, a long-time assistant for both the men's and women's programs, takes over the men's head coaching position as part of a restructuring of the soccer program.
Travis Connell, who has been the head coach for the men's program since 1999, will retain his role as women's head coach.
Brisbon, 38, came to WWU as an assistant coach in 2000 and except for a one-year absence in 2011, has held the title of associate head coach since 2004.
"It's a fantastic opportunity to be a head coach at Western," Brisbon said in a news release. "I've been an assistant for quite a while, and I think I'm ready to be head coach now. I'm looking forward to the new challenges while also keeping the traditions we've instilled over the past years while working with Travis."
