The Benedictine University Athletic Department has announced that head men’s soccer coach Brenton Joseph has resigned to become the head men’s coach at Augustana College. Joseph had been a part of the Eagles’ athletic staff for the past 10 years, including six seasons as the men’s soccer head coach (he also coached women’s soccer for eight years, four of which were concurrent with his duties guiding the men’s team). A search for a replacement for Joseph is already underway, according to Joanna Fulton, Benedictine University’s Director of Sports Personnel and Compliance. “We realize that the men’s soccer position is one that is very important to have in place as soon as possible,” said Fulton. “We have made it the highest priority to conduct a thorough search to bring in the best person possible for our program. "Our commitment to our student-athletes is to make certain that we maintain the continuity and expectations for excellence within the men’s soccer program. “We wish the best for Brenton in his future endeavors," Fulton added. "We are indebted to him for his decade of service and hope nothing but the best for him at Augustana.”
