Brittany Jones To Lead FSC Women's Soccer Program
Brittany Jones, who enjoyed an excellent career at Division I Stetson University, is Florida Southern’s new head women’s soccer coach.
FSC Athletics Director Pete Meyer said Jones will begin her duties Feb. 27. She has been the assistant women’s soccer coach at her alma mater for the past five seasons. Jones replaces Ben Strawbridge, who took a position as an assistant at the University of Arkansas.
“We were very impressed with Brittany’s experience, both as a student-athlete and as a coach,” Meyer said. “She comes highly recommended and we feel she is the right person to take our women’s soccer program to new heights.”
“I’m excited about the opportunity,” Jones said. “I’m looking forward to using my energy and resources to make this program even better than it already is.”
She takes over a program that has gone 55-31-9 in the last five seasons and made three NCAA tournament appearances.
Jones was a four-year starter for Stetson (2003-07), earning All-Atlantic Sun Conference academic honors all four years. She was team captain for three years, made the ASC All-Tournament Team and earned first-team All-ASC recognition in 2006. Stetson has gone 38-49-8 in her five seasons on the coaching staff.
An outstanding student at Stetson, she graduated magna cum laude in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in rehabilitative studies. She was chosen as the outstanding senior for Stetson’s Department of Integrative Health Sciences. She earned her master’s degree in business administration in 2011 at Stetson.
In addition to her work and playing career at Stetson, Jones is a member of the Florida State Olympic Development coaching staff working with the Florida Youth Soccer Association. She also works with the Stetson Futbol Association coaching youth soccer teams.
