Steffen Siebert Named Division III Coach of the Year After a Highly Successful Season

Steffen Siebert’s stellar season leading the Williams College Men’s Soccer programme in America has seen the German rising talent named Division III Coach of the Year.

The 39-year-old Football Careers client, who holds A Licence ranking with both UEFA and the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), saw his side lose just twice in 23 games this season. They advanced all the way to the NCAA Championship match where they lost to National no2 ranked University of Chicago.

That campaign saw Steffen recognised in the awards which are announced annually by the respected New England Soccer Journal. When the honour was confirmed Steffen stressed:

“I work with just a special group of guys. I hope they know it is more their trophy than mine.”

Siebert’s Football Careers CV is a compelling read with stints as an assistant at both Real Salt Lake in Major League Soccer and with the USA Under-18 National Team noted there. He works as Assistant Professor of Physical Education and Head Men’s Soccer Coach at the Massachusetts college.

Steffen is the youngest USSF A Licence instructor in the States: he has also earned a Masters degree in Sport Psychology and a Doctorate in Sport Leadership. He reflected:

“I have been entrusted with the head coaching position of one of the most prestigious academic and athletic programs in the country. My job is to build on the legacy that the coaches before me and all the amazing student-athletes have established.”

This past season was Steffen’s second at Williams having shone in 2021 when he arrived as the Interim Head Coach just two weeks before the league began and still made the Play-Offs. He moved to Williams after a superb season at semi-professional level in the States with New Jersey club Atlantic City FC in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL).

City finished fourth in the nation with a record club points tally and Steffen again picked up Coach of the Year honours.

His reputation in Varsity football in the States is top-drawer after three excellent years at Springfield College in New England where his side won Regional or Conference honours in each of his seasons there.

A native of Berlin in Germany, Siebert was a two-time Academic All-American for Missouri Valley College and played semi-professional soccer in his homeland before suffering a career-ending injury. He cut his teeth in the Academy at Union Berlin and knows the development journeys players face at all levels of the game.

Iraq international winger Justin Meram, who worked with Siebert at Real Salt Lake in the MLS, summed up the regard Steffen is held in by those who have worked with him.
Meram reasoned:

“Being a personable coach at the highest level is a trait not many coaches in my experience have. But with Steffen, he has that quality and much more. He can speak to anyone in the locker room and lift their confidence.

“On the tactical side, he speaks to the finest detail about the game. For me, Steffen was a blessing coming into the RSL environment. A coach that cares about a player off the field as much as on the field.”
