NORTH NEWTON, KAN. – Bethel College Athletic Director Kent Allshouse has announced that former graduate assistant Brennan Peacock has been tapped to lead the men’s soccer program.
Peacock has been the graduate assistant for the men’s and women’s soccer programs since 2010. Before coming to Bethel, he spent his collegiate soccer career at Georgia Southern University where he was three-year letter winner and team captain his sophomore and junior years and was part of teams that played in the Southern Conference Tournament semifinals and championship.
“As an assistant for both programs the past two seasons, I have seen firsthand how difficult it is to have one coach for both the men’s and women’s soccer programs,” Peacock said. “The adjustments that are being made by hiring a head coach for each program are setting the soccer programs up for success.
“These modifications will help the team be successful in the classroom and community and on the soccer field,” he added. “There is a lot of potential in the future for Bethel and I am very excited to be a part of it.”
Originally from Carrollton, Texas, Peacock has a bachelor’s degree in general studies, with concentrations in business and physical education and health and a minor in coaching, from Georgia Southern. He is currently pursuing a master’s degree in sports management from Wichita State University.
“Brennan Peacock possesses attributes which I believe will enable him to build a highly successful program here at Bethel College,” Allshouse said. “He is highly motivated, confident and approachable, as well as a good communicator who possesses a great knowledge of the game.
“Having been a very successful Division I player himself at Georgia Southern, he knows firsthand what it takes to be a winner,” Allshouse continued. “I have no doubt that Brennan is the right person to guide the Bethel men’s soccer program to a bright future.”
Peacock replaces Jason Moore, who coached both men’s and women’s soccer at Bethel for four seasons before resigning Nov. 16. The search for a women’s coach is ongoing.
