Following the 2017 FLAMESPY Award show, LFSN reporter Nick Pierce had a chance to talk with several of the award winners, including Assistant Coach of the Year Brad Soucie.
Soucie has the distinction of serving as an assistant under Flames Head Coach Ritchie McKay every day of his head coaching career. The partnership began in 1995 when the two helped resurrect the program at Portland State, which had been dormant for 15 years. He followed McKay to Colorado State, Oregon State, and New Mexico, before joining him in his first stint with the Flames (2007-09).
During the 2008-09 campaign, Soucie helped guide the Flames to a 23-12 record and an appearance in the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament (CIT).
Soucie returned to the Hill City in April 2015 as an assistant coach of the Liberty men's basketball program, helping the Flames quickly rise once again to the top of the Big South standings in just two seasons.
The Flames finished the 2016-17 season with a 21-14 overall record and a set a program record with 14 Big South wins. The Flames made a return trip to the CIT this season, advancing to the quarterfinals following wins over Norfolk State and Samford.
