RICHMOND, Va. – VCU Assistant Coach Brett Teach has affected a lot of lives through the game of soccer. Teach has coached at six different universities and has helped transform each program into a national contender.
This past week, Teach was recognized for one of those programs he transformed as he was announced as part of the 2014 Auburn University at Montgomery Athletics Hall of Fame Class.
The winningest coach in both the men's and women's soccer programs at AUM, Teach collected 139 victories with the men's team and 55 wins with the women's team in his 11 combined seasons. During those years, Teach helped the Senators to the NAIA National Tournament eight times, including the first women's appearance in program's history and three national runner-up finishes with the men.
He also helped the teams to six 20-win seasons and conference regular season championships each year. Teach also led the Senators to eight conference tournament titles, four NAIA Region 13 Championships and final rankings inside the NAIA Top-25 on nine occasions. Under his leadership, he coached 35 NAIA All-Americans, including fellow inductee and two-time national player of the year, Hjartarsson.
At VCU, Teach has helped the Rams to a 42-26-13 record that has involved national rankings, as high as eighth in the country, and two consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances.
VCU has developed ten players who have received professional contracts during Teach's time at VCU thus far, including Generation Adidas player Jason Johnson.
