MACU Athletic Director Marcus Moeller is proud to announce that Anthony Yousey will take the reins of the MACU women’s soccer program for the upcoming 2021 season.
“I’m excited to have Coach Yousey join our MACU family,” said Moeller. “He comes into a program with great talent, terrific young women and a very exciting future ahead. We’re confident his relationships locally and regionally will continue the upward trajectory of the program. Additionally, his heart to see young people reach their full potential off the field will be a natural fit with the culture we’re continuing to build within the athletics department at MACU.”
“I am very excited to work at such a great university and continue the growth of a program that has already shown over the years to be very successful,” said Yousey. “I’m looking forward to meeting the players and getting right to work.” Yousey comes to MACU after serving as the head men’s soccer coach at NCAA Division II and former Sooner Athletic Conference member Oklahoma Baptist University from 2013 to 2021. He is also in his first season as the assistant coach of the Oklahoma City Football Club in the Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL), where he works alongside former MACU women’s soccer head coach Evan Dresel.
Yousey will be heading the program after Dresel, who served as the head coach since 2010 before accepting the head coaching position at Oklahoma Christian last month. The Evangels are coming off one of their best seasons in program history, completing the COVID-19 split 2020-21 campaign with a 15-3 overall record and finishing second in the SAC standings with an 8-1 conference mark.
The Evangels will open the regular season with a home match against MidAmerica Nazarene University on Aug. 28.
