Nebraska State Soccer is pleased to announce the hiring of Matt Briggs as our new Director of Coaching. Matt is no stranger to the Nebraska soccer community and we are excited for the knowledge and personality he will bring to the association.
Matt has over 20 years of experience coaching players of all ages in the UK, US and Kenya at grass roots, college, university and professional level. He most recently has been working in a variety of positions for FC Kansas City as the Academy Manager and Director of Coaching as well as the Assistant Coach and Sports Scientist for the FCKC Women’s Professional team.
Matt will start in this new role on Monday, March 12. When he starts, it won’t take long for him to get acclimated- prior to his work in Kansas City, Matt coached Men’s Soccer at Bellevue University and worked for both Regional and National events for the Olympic Development Program. He has also been involved in teaching coaching license courses in Nebraska and is already pretty well-known around the state. Matt looks forward to meeting with our member communities to connect and better serve our members on the coaching and education platforms.
We are excited to welcome Matt back to Nebraska and to the role of Nebraska State Soccer DOC!
