New head men's soccer coach hired

Men's soccer coaches after 2008 championshipThe Messiah College intercollegiate athletics department announced Brad
as its new men’s soccer head coach, concluding a national search by
appointing one of its very own.

Messiah’s top assistant coach for the past eight years, McCarty becomes the
seventh head coach in the program’s 42-year history, taking over for 12-year leader Dave Brandt who resigned in December to accept the same position at
the United States Naval Academy.

“We are thrilled that Brad has accepted this new role,” said Jerry Chaplin, Messiah
director of athletics. “His commitment to Messiah men’s soccer, as well as to Messiah athletics, has been both significant and noticed.”

A 1993 Messiah grad, McCarty helped the Falcons’ program to five of its six NCAA Division III National Championships, returning to his alma mater at the outset of the 2001 season as the program’s top assistant. Success was quick to follow, as Messiah claimed national titles in the 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2008 seasons — posting an overall 173–14–8 record (.908) with McCarty on staff.

“I’m extremely honored and excited about the opportunity to be the head coach of Messiah College men’s soccer,” McCarty said “My desire is to work as hard as I possibly can to maintain our core ideology. The principles and values of our program are what makes this a special place, and I see it as my responsibility to be true to those ideals.”
