Andrew McClain

Andrew McClain begins his first season as the head women's soccer coach at Limestone following a five-year stint as an assistant men’s coach at Gardener-Webb University.

McClain specialized in working with the goalkeepers as he conducted devised and conducted all workouts for the group. His training helped the goalkeepers finish second in the Big South statistical categories in 2018, 2019, and 2022. He also helped two prepare players to achieve the goal of playing professionally in Europe.

In addition to his assistant coach duties, McClain was also the head coach of the reserve team at Gardner Webb from 2019 to 2022. In 2022, his team went undefeated and won the Southeast Reserve League for a third consecutive season.

Prior to Gardner Webb, McClain served as assistant men’s soccer coach at Brevard College from 2015 to 2018. He helped Brevard achieve the most wins in a season and the most wins versus conference opponents in the 2016 season. He started honing his head coach abilities as he took over the reserve team in 2016. As Brevard transitioned from NCAA II to NCAA III, McClain helped develop multiple All-Conference selections.

McClain started his coaching career at the University of Pikeville as an assistant on the women’s team. He was responsible for day-to-day operations including budgets, travel arrangements, equipment purchases, and fundraising. As the goalkeeper coach, he devised training and tactics that led to two All-Conference first-team selections and one second-team selection for goalkeepers.

McClain also has experience as a private goalkeeper coach, and a school-based therapist and served in the United States military.

He has a Bachelor of Science from the University of Pikeville and a Master of Business Administration from Gardner Webb University. He has also obtained National Soccer Coaches Association of America Goalkeeping 1 and 2 certifications, along with a USSF D license.
