Brian Redding took the lead of Dickinson men’s soccer as head coach in 2004. After 12 seasons at the helm, featuring six NCAA tournament appearances, Redding has established Dickinson as one of the nation's top Division III men's soccer programs.
Dickinson made its first-ever appearance in the NCAA tournament in 2007, and since has used that momentum to earn six more tournament selections (2008, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015).
In addition to six NCAA tournament bids, the Red Devils have made appearances in the Centennial Conference (CC) playoffs in eight of the past nine seasons. Dickinson advanced to the conference championship in 2009 and was crowned the 2011 Centennial Conference Champion after beating Haverford 3-2 in penalty kicks. The Red Devils made championship appearances in 2013 and again in 2015.
In 2012, Redding and the Red Devils welcomed beautiful Phyllis Joan Miller Memorial Field as their new training and exhibition facility.
Prior to taking the head coach position at Dickinson, Redding was the men’s assistant at his alma mater, Western Maryland College, now McDaniel College, for nine seasons. He played an integral role in recruiting and helped build the Green Terror into one of the Mid-Atlantic region’s top programs, earning postseason bids in his last two seasons.
Redding graduated from Western Maryland College in 1993. He led the Green Terror in scoring in each of his four seasons. Finishing fourth overall for points in a career, the two-time All-Region and All-CC selection appears throughout the Green Terror record books.
With a bright future ahead, Redding looks forward to building Dickinson student-athletes with strong character, passion, and commitment to the game.
He lives in Chambersburg, Pa., with his wife Julie, sons Griffin and Cohen and daughter Ashlyn.
During his 12 seasons, Redding has led the Red Devils to an overall mark of 142-64-26, entering the 2016 season
