Munroe on soccer staff

Indiana announced Monday that former goalkeeper Chris Munroe will be a volunteer assistant coach for the Hoosiers this fall. Munroe, who will be working on a master’s degree in counseling and counselor education, served as a volunteer assistant under IU coach Todd Yeagley at Wisconsin last year while attending grad school for his Ph.D in Social Psychology.

Munroe appeared in goal for 30 matches during his four years at IU from 2003-07, posting 16 victories and 11 shutouts. He was an ESPN the Magazine Academic All-American in 2005 and a four-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree.

“I am extremely excited to be back at Indiana University working alongside such knowledgeable and accomplished coaches,” Munroe said in a press release. “The opportunity to join this coaching staff was one I simply could not pass up due to my love of this university and the soccer program. It was an honor to play here and I consider it an even bigger honor to now step into my new role. College soccer is filled with many successful coaches who have gotten their start here at IU and I am thrilled to join this coaching fraternity.”
