Eketebi is Men's Soccer Coach
Munga Eketebi has been named the first full-time coach in Broward College's history. A three-time all-American as part of the FIU’s 1984 Division II national championship team and the 1985 national champion runner-up team, Eketebi knows South Florida’s soccer community and is a popular figure there, which will help with future recruiting.
“I’m happy to be back in South Florida and excited to be coaching at Broward College, Eketebi said. “Community college soccer is a little different because we only have the players for two years.”
Coach Eketebi Returns to South Florida
After his playing days concluded, FIU Coach Karl Kremser invited him back to coach with him. He signed on in 1987 until his mentor retired, with the exception of a one-year stint as Nova Southeastern University’s head coach, where he posted a mark of 12-6-1. When Kremser retired, Eketebi was named Kremser’s replacement, and in the five years that followed, compiled a 27-51-9 record.
Now, after two years coaching youth soccer in College Station Texas, Eketebi is back in South Florida, doing what he loves most in the place he most enjoys doing it.
Eketebi’s still getting to know his players and their abilities. “How we play – offensively and defensively – all depends on our players, and what they can do,” he says. “I do like to play possession soccer, but I’m going to have to see what we’ve got before I decide what we’ll try to do.”
