Coach Caleb Porter completed his staff by adding Brett Teach as his second assistant, the university announced today.
Teach was head coach at Auburn University Montgomery, where he led his team to the NAIA semifinals. In his six seasons, the team went to the Final Four four times.
As you can see below, Teach has a mullet that looks second to none. For that reason, I'll give this hire an A+ grade.
By the way, Akron finished 18th in the nation in attendance this season, which is impressive considering the less-than-adequate seating. An average of 1,064 fans came out to games, making men's soccer the third-most attended Zips sport behind football and basketball.
Akron has never played Nevada, but the two teams will match up tonight. The winner likely will be ranked in the top 25.
If you don't get ESPNU and don't want to go to Panini's to watch the basketball game, you can go to the Field House for Akron's final of four home meets. The Zips Open will include Buffalo and some individual athletes. It starts at 7 p.m., so maybe you can watch both games.
I've said this before, Akron students need to go to at least one track meet at the Field House. It's some exciting stuff. Get your frat boys together and root on the Zips.
