Head Coach Bryan Davis



Bryan DavisAlma Mater:  Wisconsin
Graduating Year:  2001
Experience:  8 Years


Bryan Davis was named as the ninth head coach in Wright State men's soccer history on May 1, 2009. As he enters his fourth season in 2012, his passion and enthusiasm to improve the program has not wavered in the least.

 

With all the success that has occurred since Davis took over the program, 2016 showed leaps in improvement, culminating in Wright State's first Horizon League regular-season championship.  The Raiders returned to the championship game for the third straight year and fourth time in the last six seasons.


Other highlights of the magical season included eight Raiders honored by the Horizon League.  Davis was named the Coach of the Year as Peguy Ngatcha received the Player of the Year and the Offensive Player of the Year honors.  Ngatcha, Eric Lynch, Jake Stovall and Kaique Fernandes were named to the first team and Jackson Dietrich and AJ Paterson received second-team honors.  Austin Kinley was added to the Newcomer Team.

 

Ngatcha, Lynch and Stovall were named to All-Ohio Teams while those three were joined by Dietrich on the All-Regioan Teams.  Later, Stovall and Ngatcha became just the second and third Raiders ever selected in the MLS Draft.  Stovall was chosen by the Seattle Sounders, the reigning MLS Cup champions, in the third round while Ngatcha was picked by the Colorado Rapids in the fourth round.

 

2016 also saw additions to Wright State's overall list of signature wins that include Cincinnati, Fullerton, West Virginia, Portland, Marquette, Kentucky, San Diego State as well as a ties at Ohio State and at #17 Virginia Tech.

 

2015 saw plenty of jumps in the Raider soccer program, including a national ranking.  The Raiders finished with 12 wins overall and advanced to the finals of the Horizon League Tournament.  Ngatcha and Lynch received first team HL honors, Sam DeRoy second team and Dietrich and Eric Hutton were named to the Freshman Team.  Dietrich was also named the Freshman of the Year.

 

That passion shows through his relentless dedication to make the Raiders the best possible team.  In 2014, sophomore forward Lynch was selected as the Player of the Year and three other Raiders received All-League honors.  He was joined on the First Team by sophomore forward Ngatcha and senior defender Emeka Ononye while defender Austin Polster was selected to the All-Freshman Team.  The team also showed results on the field with the most wins at WSU since 2001 and advancing to its second Horizon League finals in four seasons.

 

Elder and Ononye received second team honors in 2013 as Stovall and Lynch were named to the Freshman Team.  Lynch was also named to the final TopDrawerSoccer.com Top 100 Freshman College Players list.  As a team, the Raiders advanced to the semifinals of the Horizon League Tournament, losing to eventual champion UIC on their home field.

 

2012 saw the completion of the Rinzler Student Sports Complex with team rooms, restrooms and concessions.  2012 also saw the emergence of Elder as he was named the Horizon League Newcomer of the Year, First Team All-League and a Freshman All-American while Derek Zuniga was selected as a Second Team All-Horizon League honoree.

 

Just as improvements were made to Alumni Field, the home of the Raiders, in 2011, the men's soccer program also made a noticebale improvement in wins and Horizon League placement.  After being picked to finish last in the league's preseason poll, Davis led his team to an 11-7-2 record overall and a 5-2-1 league mark, good for a second-place tie.  WSU then advanced to the championship match of the Horizon League Tournament against Loyola before falling 1-0 in overtime.

 

The team also garnered five All-Horizon League honors, including two First Teamers in Brian Cothern and Bryce Rockwell-Ashton while Craig Feehan, Justin Laird and Gustav Svensson were selected to the All-Newcomer Team.  Feehan was also named the league's Newcomer of the Year.

 

Davis came to WSU after four seasons at George Washington University as assistant coach. While at GWU, he worked with the squad's goalkeepers and assisted head coach George Lidster with recruiting, training, scheduling, budgeting, fundraising, alumni outreach and monitoring the team's academic progress.

 

A major component of Davis' duties at GWU was heading up the recruiting efforts which landed the Colonials with the 27th nationally ranked recruiting class in 2008, according to College Soccer News. The highest-ranked class in George Washington history included Brice Carr (US U17 Residency Program), and Yoni Berhanu (2008 Atlantic 10 rookie of the year).

 

Davis' recruiting success, though, didn't start with that class as one of his earliest recruits at GWU, Andrew Stadler, on his way to being named NSCAA First Team All-Region in 2008 and 2009, was ranked in the top ten for NCAA Division I scoring in 2008 with 14 goals and ranked in the top 5 in Division I soccer in 2009 in Goals per game with 13 goals in 13 games played.

 

Davis arrived at GWU from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he served as the head coach of Waukesha West High School from 2003-2004. With Davis at the helm, Waukesha West earned a top-five state ranking in 2004 and a ranking of 12th in the region. In Davis' first season at Waukesha West, he mentored former Colonials Greg Yahr, Thomas Stuber and Mike Briscoe.

 

Davis also has coaching experience with several Olympic Development Programs across the country. The Wisconsin native was on the staff of the Virginia ODP from 2005-2008, was a coach for Wisconsin ODP in 2004 and is now involved with Ohio South ODP. Davis also worked with the Region I ODP program after coaching in Region II in 2005.

 

In addition, Davis serves as the director of the Elite Team Camp and the Elite Goalkeeper Academy. Recently, Davis was also head coach for the U18 Potomac Academy Team and on staff with the Potomac Soccer Club. His U-15 boys' team finished third in the nation at the 2005 U.S. Youth Soccer National Championship.

 

Davis played for the University of Cincinnati in 1997 and the University of Wisconsin in 1998, graduating from Wisconsin in 2001.

 

COACHING LICENSES:

Davis currently holds his NSCAA National and Advanced National Diplomas, NSCAA Level I and Level II Goalkeeper Diplomas, USSF Goalkeeper License, and USSF "B" License.
