B.S., Methodist College
Alumnus Bryan Madej completed his third season as Methodist’s head coach in 2013 after previously serving in an interim role in 2010.
During this past fall, the Monarchs finished 11-7-2 (8-3-1 USA South) and lost in overtime to visiting Meredith, 1-0, in the conference tournament quarterfinals. The defeat ended the team’s seven-match unbeaten streak.
For the third time in as many seasons, Methodist earned one of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America’s Team Academic Awards. At the time of the selection process, the Monarchs had a 3.09 cumulative team grade point average during the fall 2013 semester. To be eligible for this honor, a team must collectively post a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Prior to his appointment to the women’s coaching staff, Madej served as an assistant for the Methodist men’s soccer team from 2005-2009.
During his playing career at Methodist from 1999-2002, Madej was a three-time All-Dixie Intercollegiate Athletic Conference selection, including a first-team pick in 2001. He was named to the NSCAA’s All-South Second Team in 2000 and scored 15 goals during that season.
In the program’s record books, he ranks sixth in career goals (38) and eighth in career points (84).
Madej graduated from Methodist in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in justice studies.
He holds an Advanced National Diploma from the NCSAA as well as a Premier Diploma, which he earned in 2013.
Aside from his body of work in Methodist’s soccer program, Madej previously coached varsity girls’ soccer at nearby Terry Sanford High School, and formerly served as the Director of Coaching for the U-15 to U-18 boys’ divisions at the Fayetteville Soccer Club.
In 2008, he led the ’90 FSC Force Premier to the NCYSA President’s Cup State title. That team would later win the Region III President’s Cup Championship in Columbus, Ga., before losing in the National Director’s Cup title game in Kirkwood, Del.
Currently Madej is the Director of Coaching for the Liberty Point Soccer Club, and oversees teams from U-10 through U-18.
Madej and Christine Delaney are proud parents of Joshua Matthew Madej, born on June 2, 2011.
