Change coming in 2020

With a heavy heart, today I met with our returning players to announce that I have decided to step away from our program. I am looking forward to time with my family, and time spent on other aspects of my career at Linn-Mar. It is unclear, at this time on who will takeover, or whether members of the current coaching staff will stay on, or even apply for the vacancy, themselves.

Please contact the LMHS Athletic Department with questions about out-of season activities. Until a new individual has been hired, all (new) online activity will cease from our previously used accounts; this includes this website, Linn-Mar Soccer’s Gmail account, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Hudl, and YouTube. **These platforms will remain live, should the new coach decide he/she wants to utilize them.

It has been my pleasure to have been associated with this program for the last 20 years, and the Head Coach for the last 19. I hope that the next coach will be able to continue what I strived to do: make Linn-Mar a perennial soccer powerhouse by developing high-character student-athletes. Good luck to our teams in 2020, and beyond!

Forever a Lion,

Coach Brinkmeyer
