Women's Soccer - Fri, Mar. 30, 2012
MOUNT PLEASANT - Iowa Wesleyan College has named Brocklon Chatman as the school's new Head Women's Soccer Coach, Athletic Director Mike Hampton announced today.
Chatman was already the head coach of the IWC men's soccer team and will assume duties leading the women's soccer program as well. He replaces Sara Williamson, who resigned in March after coaching the team the past two years.
Chatman came on as Iowa Wesleyan's Head Men's Soccer Coach in March 2011. Last year in his first season the Tigers finished 4-12 overall and 1-7 in the Midwest Collegiate Conference, finishing eighth in the conference and losing in the first round of the MCC Tournament. IWC improved from a 3-12-1 mark the year before and lost four games by one goal.
He takes over a Tiger women's soccer team that is coming off the best season in school history in 2011 under Williamson. Wesleyan finished 9-10 overall, setting a school record for wins in a season. The Tigers finished fifth in the MCC with a 3-5 conference record and were only a few goals from even a far better season, losing six matches by a single goal, including three in overtime. In two years Williamson improved IWC from a 1-15-1 mark in her first season to 9-10 last year.
Chatman came to Wesleyan from Missouri Baptist University, where he was a graduate assistant with the men's soccer program for two years. He also played in college at Missouri Baptist, where he graduated in 2009 with his bachelor's degree in Professional Studies. As a player he was named AMC Freshman of the Year in 2005 and was named all-conference from 2005-07, including First Team All-AMC in 2005 and 2007. Chatman has both his bachelor's and master's degrees from Missouri Baptist, including the completion of a master's in Sport Management from MBU in Dec. 2011.
