University of South Florida men’s soccer coach George Kiefer named former MLS goalkeeper Bryheem Hancock as a volunteer coach Monday.

Hancock, a former captain of the American  U-17 National Team, will work primarly with the goalkeepers.

“I am very excited to have Bryheem join our staff at USF,” Kiefer said in a statement. “He has firsthand experience in winning a National Championship and I believe he brings a lot of experience for the program and to our goalkeepers. He is going to be a great addition to our program.”

Hancock helped Connecticut win a National Championship in 2000, and he earned Big East Goalkeeper of the Year in 2001.

He was selected in the 2001 MLS Draft by the LA Galaxy and spent three years playing professionally in the United States.
