MARION, Ind. –  Indiana Wesleyan University Athletics is proud to announce the hiring of Daniel Seiffert as the new head coach for the Indiana Wesleyan women’s soccer program.

 

“We are thrilled to have Daniel Seiffert as our next head women’s soccer coach,” said Athletic Director Mark DeMichael. “I am very grateful to the search committee who prayerfully went through the search process that enabled us to make a great decision from a very deep and talented candidate pool.”

 

 

Seiffert has spent the last nine seasons at Crossroads League member Mount Vernon Nazarene University where he guided the Cougars to an overall record of 86-59-15 and a 2009 NAIA National Championships berth, the only berth in Mount Vernon Nazarene women’s soccer history. Seiffert has developed three NAIA All-Americans and eight NCCAA All-Americans. His teams have also succeeded in the classroom receiving both the NAIA and the NSCAA Team Academic Awards.

 

 

“I am incredibly excited to be joining the Indiana Wesleyan University family as the head women’s soccer coach,” said Seiffert.  “I am keenly aware of the rich tradition of the university, the athletics department, and the women’s soccer program. The combination of Christian values, a competitive environment, and a commitment to excellence and to developing student-athletes to be their absolute best both on and off the field makes IWU a very special place.”

 

 

Seiffert holds a NSCAA Premier Diploma, a USSF ‘B” license, NSCAA National Goalkeeping Diploma and is currently a USSF ‘A-Senior’ Candidate. In the summer, Seiffert serves as an assistant coach for the Columbus Eagles FC, a WPSL women’s soccer team in Columbus, Ohio.

 

 

“In addition to Daniel’s knowledge of Crossroads League women’s soccer and his experience recruiting in the Midwest, he brings a total commitment to the IWU athletics mission and an enthusiastic plan to integrate faith and discipleship into the women’s soccer program,” said DeMichael. “ We believe this combination will enable the women’s soccer program to fulfill Indiana Wesleyan’s Athletic mission at even higher level.”

 

 

Prior to coaching, Seiffert was a four-year member of the MVNU men’s soccer team where he played in all 76 matches with 69 of them being starts. He was named to the NCCAA East Region Team and earned All-AMC honors as a senior. He capped off his career by being selected as the NCCAA’s Kyle Rote, Jr. National Player of the Year – an honor recognizing playing ability, scholastic achievement, positive leadership qualities, and Christian character.

 

 

“I am blessed to have this opportunity to invest in our women’s soccer program as we work together to achieve the mission of the IWU Athletics Department (Spiritual Growth, Academic Achievement, Leadership Development, and Athletic Excellence),” said Seiffert. “Honoring God with our very best in all that we do will be paramount. The spirit in the athletics department and on campus is remarkable and I want to thank Mark DeMichael, John Jones, and Dr. Wright for this outstanding opportunity.”

 

 

Seiffert graduated from MVNU in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Integrated Mathematics Education and a minor in Business Administration. He also holds a Master’s Degree in Sports Science and Coaching from Ohio University.
