Steve Moore

RICHMOND, Ind. - Steve Moore was appointed the first head coach of the Indiana University East NAIA men's soccer program on Aug. 17, 2016.


Moore came to IU East from Clarke University, an NAIA program in Dubuque, Iowa. Moore produced two of the top three seasons in the Clarke men's soccer program's 32-year history during his tenure with the Crusaders.


Moore has a history of program-building throughout his coaching career. Moore coached the women's soccer program at Bethany College in Kansas from 2007 to 2011, where his first two teams doubled and then re-doubled the program's victory total from the year prior to his arrival.


Moore's first college head coaching experience came at Concordia University Chicago, where he coached the men's and women's teams. His 2005 men's team won the conference championship. The women's team posted the best winning percentage in the program's history to that point the same year.


Moore also served as an assistant coach for the NCAA Division I women's program at the University of Central Arkansas and as the head soccer recruiting coach for the National Collegiate Scouting Association (NCSA)


"It's a great honor to be named the inaugural head men's soccer coach at Indiana University East!" Moore said. "The support and enthusiasm for athletics here is undeniable, and to be able to combine that with the level and notoriety of an Indiana University education made this move a no-brainer.


"There's going to be a lot of work that goes into getting this program started, but the potential here is off the charts, and I couldn't be more excited about this opportunity!"

IU East exceeded expecations in the program's first season during the fall of 2017. The Red Wolves finished 9-9-2 and reached the semifinals of the River States Conference tournament. The season included a daw at then-No. 3 University of Rio Grande, snapping a 33-match home winning streak for the RedStorm.


IU East continued to move forward in 2018. The Red Wolves won seven consecutive matches late in the season to finish the year with 10 victories. The Red Wolves again reached the semifinals of the River States Conference tournament.


Moore earned his bachelor's degree in accounting at Greenville College, where he was an NCCAA All-American as a goalkeeper.

Matthew Wolf

Matthew Wolf was appointed as the assistant men's soccer coach at Indiana University East in July of 2017.


Wolf previously served as an assistant coach at Whitworth University (Wash.), the University of Great Falls (Mont. – now known as the University of Providence), Occidental College (Calif.) and Rogue Community College (Ore.).


In five seasons of coaching prior to his time at IU East, Wolf played a key role with programs that produced three regular season conference championships and four postseason appearances.


"Really stoked about bringing Matt on to our coaching staff!" said IU East men's soccer head coach Steve Moore. "He comes to IU East having already coached a number of years at multiple college levels, so I have no doubt our players are really going to benefit from his experience. I'm personally really excited about having him on board because he's got a solid soccer mind, and he wants to soak up as much coaching knowledge as he can. He's got a great future as a coach, and I can't wait to develop this team/program with him this fall!"


Wolf earned his bachelor's degree in history and sociology from Gonzaga University. He holds a master's degree in organizational management from the University of Great Falls.


"I first heard about IU East adding men's soccer earlier in the year," Wolf said. "After seeing Coach Moore build the roster, coupled with the academic and athletic reputation of the IU system, it was an opportunity I was immediately interested in. I am excited about the chance to help Coach Moore build a program with the culture and identity aligned with his vision as well as to IU East standards."


IU East in 2016 announced plans to add NAIA men's and women's soccer programs. The teams will begin NAIA competition during the 2017-18 school year.

I have had a profile on SINC Soccer for 4 years, and it helped me to organize my information so that I was ready when the recruiting process started. I had selected some schools using your site when I was 13 and that helped to start the conversation with those schools and find out about their ID camps, and when UNC made an offer I was prepared.
