Bruce Dietterle will join the Stetson men's soccer coaching
staff as an assistant for the 2012 season, as was announced by Hatters Head
Coach T. Logan Fleck on Thursday morning.
"Bruce is a fine young coach," Fleck said of Dietterle on Thursday.
"He will bring plenty of energy and enthusiasm to the program. We're all looking forward to working with him
in his first season on the Hatters staff."
Dietterle comes to DeLand after a two-year stint as an
assistant coach at the University
of Montevallo, where he
helped lead the Falcons to a 30-7-6 record during 2010 and 2011 and the
program's first Peach Belt Conference Championship.
"I'm really excited to become part of the Stetson family and
work with Coach Fleck," Dietterle said about the opportunity. "Stetson's academic reputation and athletic
history will make this an easy place to call home."
While at Montevallo Deitterle was responsible for assisting
in all aspects of coaching, as well as recruiting, weight program design and
application, compliance, program development, academic monitoring, scheduling,
Dietterle coached 10 All-Conference players, five All-Region
honorees, and one All-American. The NCAA
Division II program also included 10 Scholar All-Region players and a Scholar
All-American. The squad earned NSCAA
Team Scholar accolades both seasons that Dietterle was on the staff.
Before coaching at Montevallo, Dietterle was an assistant
coach at Division II Pfeiffer University for three seasons. He also has experience coaching club and ODP
soccer in both North Carolina and Alabama.
A four-year letter winner at Saint Anselm College during his
playing days, Dietterle graduated from Saint A's in 2006 with a Bachelor of
Arts in Criminal Justice. He also holds
a NSCAA National Coaching Diploma.
