Brandon Tucker Elevated to Associate Head Men's Soccer Coach
“Brandon has put a lot of time and effort into this program,” Boulware said. “I’m excited to elevate him to this position and look forward to his continued work with PC men’s soccer.”
Tucker entered the 2012 season as his fourth as an assistant coach, returning to his alma mater after a four-year playing career.
The former Blue Hose helped PC capture two Big South wins in 2011, the most since joining the league. He also guided the squad to new Division I highs in individual assist and points. Last year’s campaign followed an historic 2010 year that included the program's third straight victorious home opener. The PC alum also helped bring a 2010 Big South Conference All-Freshman Team honoree to the squad.
In Tucker's first season, he brought his expertise to help the Blue Hose improve on their 2008 season and finish at 3-11-2 while playing the then-toughest schedule since making the transition to Division I play.
Tucker came back to PC after playing for the Colorado Rapids in the MLS and the Denver Dragons of the Premier Arena Soccer League. Both teams were at the highest level of soccer in the country, with the PASL being in the indoor league and MLS in the outdoor league. In January 2010, Tucker was inducted into the Colorado Soccer Hall of Fame.
A 2007 graduate of PC with a degree in business administration and a
concentration in management, Tucker was a four-year starter for the Blue Hose. A
three-time all-conference selection, the all-region performer graduated in a
mere three and a half years.
