Bryan/College Station, TX – March 10, 2022 - Following a successful 2021 season in the USL League 2 Mid-South division, the Cavalry is bringing back a familiar face as their new Head Coach to help the club in its quest for a Lone Star Division Title, Coach Sean Pierce. Pierce was an assistant coach for the Cavalry last year and looks to bring consistency as well as a wealth of coaching experience to the Cavalry having spent multiple seasons at the collegiate and semi-professional levels.
When asked about the new hire, Uri Geva, owner of the Brazos Valley Cavalry, said “Signing Coach Pierce was an easy decision for us. His attitude and passion towards the game of soccer are unmatched! He understands our mission of trying to develop and grow the sport of soccer in the Brazos Valley community. We are very excited to have Coach Pierce back with the organization.”
Pierce, a London, England native, had a brief playing career before moving to the U.S. and starting his coaching career in 2017. Pierce currently coaches as an assistant for the Division 1 Men’s Soccer program at Longwood University in Virginia. After joining the program, Pierce played a pivotal role in helping Longwood finish 3rd in the Big South Conference, tying the record for the best regular-season finish in program history for the Lancers.
When asked about signing as head coach, Coach Pierce said this: "Firstly it's a great honor to be named the Head Coach for the Cavalry and it gives me great pride to be able to lead this great club. For me, it was an easy decision to come back. I felt like I had unfinished business after the back end of last season and was interested in coming back in a head coach capacity. After having some initial talks with Uri and Sam it was confirmed in my mind that coming back to College Station was the right decision. The Cavalry have a rich history in USL2 and one of which I would like to take the club back to. I have some clear goals in developing local talent and that's something we will be focusing on in the upcoming tryouts."
After spending last season with the Cavalry, and the past 5 years of his coaching career working in Collegiate soccer, Coach Pierce is committed to bringing home a USL2 Championship to the Cavalry and Brazos Valley community as the new Brazos Valley Cavalry FC Head Coach. Get ready to welcome Head Coach Sean Peirce and the Cavalry back to Edible Field this summer. The Cavalry will host AC Houston Sur Thursday, May 26th at 7:30 PM for the club’s first home game.
