BOISE, Idaho - Boise State Head Women's Soccer Coach Steve Lucas announced the hiring of Boise native, Madison Collins, as assistant coach, Friday.
Collins comes to Boise State from Seattle University, where she was a four-year letterwinner with the women's soccer team. She began her playing career with the Redhawks as a freshman in 2005 and started every game through her senior season. The career was highlighted by NCAA Tournament appearances in 2006 and 2007, as well as being named All-GNAC First Team as a junior. After graduating in 2009, Collins remained involved with Seattle University soccer by serving as the Director of Soccer Operations.
"Our program is very excited about adding Madison to our coaching staff," said Lucas. "She has the playing experience that will immediately help our young players adjust to the college game, as well as a passion for coaching that will greatly add to our program."
The Bronco soccer team will see its first action when it hosts Arizona State for an exhibition match, Aug. 12, before the season-opener against Montana, Aug. 19.
