Bri Young enters her second season as Texas Tech's volunteer assistant coach on head coach Tom Stone's staff.
Young, a former standout soccer athlete at Texas A&M, assists with daily training and match preparations for the Red Raiders, who are coming off their best season in program history after an 18-2-3 campaign in 2013 that included a trip to the second round of the NCAA Championship.
Tech's 18 victories in Young's first season marked the most in school history. The Red Raiders went undefeated in Big 12 play, going 6-0-2 against conference foes en route to a second-place finish in the league standings, their highest ever in program history.
Young joined the Tech program after serving coaching roles at both Chaparral High School in Colorado and on three separate staffs within the Real Colorado organization, one of the top youth clubs in the nation.
Young, a native of Castle Pines North, Colorado, entered the coaching profession after a stellar career at Texas A&M where she earned both NSCAA All-Region and All-Big 12 honors. The Aggies advanced to the NCAA Tournament in each of her four seasons at A&M from 2008-11, while also claiming the Big 12 regular season title in 2010 and the conference tournament championship in 2011.
The talented midfielder was an All-Big 12 first team selection in 2010 and also garnered All-Central Region team honors by two separate publications. Young was named a freshman first-team All-American and a third-team All-American by Soccer Buzz in 2008 while also earning All-Big 12 second team and All-Big 12 newcomer team accolades as well.
Young, who also played internationally as part of the U.S. U-20 and U-23 National Teams, was named to the MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List prior to her senior season which is presented annually to the top collegiate player in the country.
In addition to her success on the pitch, Young was also an Academic All-Big 12 first team selection as a senior. She graduated in 2011 with a degree in sports management.
