Assistant Coach Soda City FC
Bill Brindley comes to Soda City off of a milestone season at the helm of the Columbia International University men’s soccer program. Since taking over the rams in 2017, Brindley has produced 10 All South Region Players and 2 second team All-Americans, something that was foreign to the Rams up until now. CIU Men’s Soccer also qualified for the NCCAA National tournament for the first time in program history in their 2018 season which was also a first for the program.
Before coming to CIU, Brindley spent five seasons at Trinity Baptist, where he led the Eagles from a fledgling first year program to a consistent NCCAA National Championship tournament team. In his last three seasons at TBC Brindley amassed a record of 43-17 and led the Eagles to a NCCAA DII National Championship and three Southeast Region championships.
Prior to his stint at Trinity Baptist, Brindley was a standout collegiate athlete at Palm Beach Atlantic University. When his collegiate playing years came to a close, Brindley went on to play professionally in the United Soccer League for Real Maryland and the Pittsburgh River Hounds, before he transitioned into coaching.
He resides in Columbia with his Wife Kelly and two sons Theo (3) and Sawyer(1).
