Assistant Coach - 5th Season
Kyle began his playing career in the St. Louis area where he played for BUSCH Soccer Club. Kyle's club experience was extensive with BUSCH where at one point the team was ranked #4 in the nation for club programs.
After finishing his high school tenure, where he was a four year varsity starter and earned All-State Honors along with All-Midwest Region Academic Athlete Honors, he attended Dominican University where he played one year of varsity soccer as the only freshmen to start all games, before transferring to the University of Kentucky. At Kentucky Kyle was asked to walk on to the varsity team but was unable to do so due to a ligament injury in his knee. Kyle played four years on the UK Men's Club Soccer Team where he was co-captain for two of the four years. After earning his B.A. in Psychology at the University of Kentucky, Kyle enrolled at the University of Denver for his M.A. in Sport and Performance Psychology.
Kyle began his coaching career while in high school volunteering as a student coach for the girls' program and at the youth level. At the University of Kentucky Kyle assisted as a player coach for the Men's Club Program and as an assistant coach with Lafayette High School's boys' varsity and junior varsity teams. After moving to Denver Kyle began coaching with the Littleton United Soccer Club. Kyle then began coaching with Broomfield Blast Soccer Club after one year with Littleton. He was also a volunteer coach with two club teams hosted through the University of Denver.
Kyle is hoping to bring his passion for the game of soccer and his knowledge and education in Sport and Performance Psychology to assist with building the Holy Cross College Men's Soccer team to a premier NAIA program. Kyle lives in the South Bend area where he works as a Child and Adolescent Therapist for a community mental health provider.
