Yeagley selected for NSCAA Hall of Fame

The NSCAA has selected legendary Indiana University coach Jerry Yeagley as the 43rd member of its Hall of Fame.

Yeagley coached men's soccer for 40 years at IU -- the first 10 as a club sport. During Yeagley’s 31 years as varsity coach, the Hoosiers compiled a 544-101-45 record, made 28 NCAA Tournament appearances and won six national titles. In the first 13 years that the Big Ten held a conference championship, Yeagley’s team claimed 10 titles.

Also selected to the Hall of Fame was the late Paul “Sandy” Sanderson, the former Suffield (Conn.) Academy coach who worked to expand the NSCAA's reach in the high school coaching community, especially during the growth period of the 1960s and 1970s.

Yeagley and Sanderson will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at the NSCAA’s annual Awards Banquet, which will be held Jan. 18 in Baltimore.
