Head Men's Soccer Coach/Camp DirectorBen Schneweis
Ben Schneweis became the sixth head coach in Cobber men's soccer history after being hired in the spring of 2012.
Before coming to Concordia, Schneweis was the top assistant coach at North Dakota State University. He also served as the Director of Soccer Operations for the Bison for two years.
Schneweis takes over for Dan Weiler who was the men’s and women’s soccer coach at the college but stepped away from the men’s position to concentrate solely on his duties as head coach of the nationally recognized women’s program.
Schneweis was an assistant coach for the North Dakota State University women’s soccer program last season after being the Director of Soccer Operations in 2010. He helped NDSU advance to the Summit League tournament championship game in 2011 and has been a part of a program that participated in the NCAA Division I and II Tournaments. Before his stint at NDSU, Schneweis served for three years as both the men’s and women’s assistant coaches at NCAA Division II Bellarmine University in Louisville, Ky.
“I’m absolutely thrilled and cannot wait to get to work on building the foundation of success for the men’s program, said Schneweis. “It is an honor to lead the young men in the soccer program.”
Schneweis brings a diverse background to the job as well as an experienced knowledge of soccer in the region. He grew up in Grand Forks, N.D., played for Red River High School and then went on to play collegiately at Brescia University in Owensboro, Ky. In addition to his coaching stints at NDSU and Bellarmine, Schneweis has served as the General Manager and Youth Program Director of the Mockingbird Valley Soccer Club in Louisville, Ky. and has been a staff coach with the Tri-City Storm Soccer Club in Fargo.
Schneweis graduated from the University of North Dakota with a degree in English. He will be finishing his master’s degree in Science in Educational Leadership in August.
