Former Hatter Stephanie Webb was announced as the Stetson Women's
Soccer Assistant Coach on Monday, July 16, 2012. Webb comes to DeLand after a recent stint as
an assistant coach at Central Michigan.
She joined the Chippewa staff prior to the 2010 season, and
helped lead them to two stellar seasons.
Webb had a multitude of responsibilities at CMU, which included
training, scheduling, and acting as the recruiting coordinator.
In 2010, Central Michigan
finished with a 16-5-1 record, becoming one of two teams to win 10 conference
games and earn 30 points since the MAC went to an 11-game format. CMU earned
its second straight MAC regular season and tournament championship, while
garnering the second NCAA tournament berth in as many seasons.
In her second season with the Chippewas, Webb helped the
team post their best winning percentage in program history, as the team
finished 15-3-3 for a mark of .783.
During both seasons with CMU, the Chippewas claimed the nation's top
grade point average with marks of 3.76 in 2010 and 3.70 in 2011.
Prior to working with Central Michigan,
Webb spent the previous year as the Technical Academy Director of the Palm
Harbor Soccer Club. She organized training sessions, advised head coaches in
their development, and put together plans for the entire U9 - U15 girls
Webb, who earned her Master of Science in Sports
Administration from Central Michigan in 2012,
received her Bachelor's degree at Stetson back in 2009. The former forward played two seasons with
the Hatters after transferring from Texas A&M International. She appeared in 25 matches, started six
contests, and tallied three assists at Stetson. In 29 contests for TAMIU, she
racked up 16 goals and a total of 36 points.
After finishing her playing career in 2008, Webb stayed on
at Stetson as an intern with the soccer program for the rest of her time as a
student. She assisted with training
sessions, organization of recruiting visits, academic support, and the program's
day-to-day operations. Since June of
2009, Webb has been able to stay in the Hatter family as a striker coach for
Stetson's Elite Camps.
Webb holds a UEFA B Part 2 Coaching Badge, and an NSCAA
Head Coach Julie Orlowski on Stephanie Webb
"We are happy to have her back in the Hatter family on a day
to day basis," Orlowski said. "There's
always an advantage of having an alumni so heavily involved in the program, as
it's a link to the past and an investment in our future. In having such a young squad, her leadership
will be invaluable. The things that
separate Webby from the rest are her ability on the field in training, and the
way her personality will help shape our team culture."
