A former Texas A&M soccer standout has been added to the Texas Tech soccer staff.

Bri Young has been added to the program’s coaching staff as a volunteer assistant.

Young was a four-year letterwinner at Texas A&M where she earned both NSCAA All-Region and All-Big 12 honors during her collegiate career, and then went on to serve coaching roles at both Chaparral High School in Colorado and three separate staffs within the premier Real Colorado organization.

“Her experience at all levels as a player gives Bri a great platform as a coach to lead young women,” said Tech head coach Tom Stone. “Bri expects a high level of commitment and play every day and I am excited to see her impact on our program.”

Young helped to guide Texas A&M to a conference championship in 2010 and a Big 12 tournament championship in 2011, and was a member of the U-20 and U-23 squads of the U.S. National Team.

She joins a program that advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 2012 and broke the school record for wins in a single season with 16.
