Northeast Names New Men’s Soccer Coach


NORFOLK – Northeast Community College has hired Doug Seigle as the new head coach for the Hawks men’s soccer program. He comes to Northeast with over 15 years of collegiate soccer coaching experience including five as a head coach at the junior college level.
Most recently, Seigle was the head men’s and women’s soccer coach at Indian Hills Community College in Ottumwa, IA. He spent five years leading both programs for the Warriors. Prior to Indian Hills, Seigle coached at five other colleges including serving as head coach at NCAA Division II Montana State University-Billings. In addition to his coaching experience, Seigle played soccer professionally, including stints with different Major League Soccer (MLS) reserve teams.
“I would like to thank Northeast Director of Athletics Jake Ripple and the search committee for the opportunity to be a part of the growing soccer and athletic programs at Northeast,” Seigle said. “I am excited about this opportunity and believe that we will be able to compete immediately with the goal of improving every day. I am hitting the ground running with the goal of putting together a great training camp and trying to finalize our roster before August. Although we have a good size roster, I am always looking to add more quality players.”
Ripple is pleased Seigle will be joining the Hawks.
“I am excited to have someone with Doug’s experience level to lead our men’s soccer program. He has a challenge ahead of him with the accelerated timeline, but I think there is a solid foundation which Coach Seigle will be able to build upon to improve our program,” Ripple said.
Seigle is a graduate of Viterbo University in La Crosse, WI, where earned a liberal arts degree. He is currently working to complete his master’s degree at Kansas State University.
Seigle succeeds Chad Miller, who is now Northeast Community College’s women’s soccer coach. This will be the first season for women’s soccer at the College.
