Hain Resigns Women's Soccer Coaching Duties

Liberty University Director of Athletics Jeff Barber has announced that head women's soccer coach Jessica Hain has resigned from her coaching duties. A national search for the seventh head coach in the program's history will begin immediately.

"I want to express my appreciation to Jessica for all the work and effort she put into helping to build our women's soccer program," said Barber. "She not only coached our team to success on the field, but she also had a profound impact on the lives her student-athletes."

After taking over the program in 2008, Hain amassed an 83-62-18 overall coaching record in eight seasons, including a 46-25-8 mark in Big South play.

Hain guided the Lady Flames to Big South regular season titles in 2009, 2014 and 2015. Liberty has reached the Big South Women's Soccer Championship title game each of the last three seasons, capturing the conference's crown in 2013 and 2015.

During her time at Liberty, Hain coached 23 All-Big South honorees (10 first team; 13 second team) and had 16 players named to Big South All-Tournament teams. Hain coached the 2014 Big South Defensive Player of the Year (Holly Van Noord) and she was named Big South Coach of the Year in 2009.

During her tenure as head coach, Hain helped with the development of standout midfield Brittany Aanderud, the first player in program history to sign a professional soccer contract. Aanderud signed with Tierps IF in Sweden in February.
