The three-time All-Big Ten selection joins the MSU staff.
EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State women’s soccer coach Tom Saxton announced the hiring of former Spartan Mary Fiebernitz as a volunteer assistant coach on Monday.
Fiebernitz is now the third former Michigan State player to join Saxton’s staff along with associate head coach Tammy Farnum and assistant coach Stacy DeLonge.
“We are delighted to welcome Mary back to Michigan State. She was an outstanding college player and leader for our program during her playing career. She also did a great job as a volunteer in the winter of 2016,” Saxton said. “The time Mary spent with professional teams the past two years also provides her with incredibly valuable experience at the highest level. Mary has a great future in coaching, and we are very grateful to have her on our staff.”
Fiebernitz was invited to and participated in the 2016 preseason camp with the Washington Spirit’s professional team in the NWSL. She also participated in the month long 2018 preseason camp with Sky Blue FC’s professional team in the NWSL.
The Linden, Michigan native, joins the Michigan State staff after serving as the boys’ associate head coach at Linden High School during the 2017 season. During 2016, she was a volunteer assistant at Michigan State working with the staff on practice plans.
Fiebernitz graduated with a degree in interdisciplinary studies in 2015. She was a three-time All-Big Ten honoree, including garnering first-team honors as a senior in 2015. Fiebernitz is a two-time captain who also captured NSCAA All-Region honors from 2013-15.
