MSU Assistant Coach Stannard Honored
Jan. 11, 2013
East Lansing, Mich. -- - Michigan State Assistant Men's Soccer Coach Kylie Stannard has been recognized by College Soccer News as one of the nation's top assistant coaches, as announced on January 9th.
Stannard began coaching at Michigan State in 2009, after serving as the assistant coach for four seasons at Northern Illinois under two-time MAC Coach of the Year, Steve Simmons. During Stannard's tenure at Michigan State, the Spartans have made three NCAA tournament appearances in four seasons, including a run to the Sweet 16 in 2010. This past season, Stannard helped lead MSU to a Big Ten Tournament title and an NCAA berth in which the Spartans made an appearance in the round of 32, including a 9-4 record down the stretch to end the season.
"I am happy to see Kylie being recognized as one of the top assistants in the country," said head coach Damon Rensing. "Assistant coaches frequently don't get recognized for their hard work and the impact they have on a program. Kylie has been an integral part of our success over the last four years. His combination of knowledge, work ethic, and connections have certainly made him one of the top assistants in the country. He has earned this honor."
