Keith Tiemeyer
Assistant Coach
Division 1

Coaching in his 10th season with the Wisconsin mens soccer program in 2018, associate head coach Keith Tiemeyer has been instrumental in the Badgers success, taking UW to the NCAA tournament twice and to a Sweet 16 appearance in 2017. He was named one of the nation's top assistant coaches by College Soccer News again in 2018 for the second time in his career for his role in UW's historic 2017 season. The Badgers won their first outright Big Ten Tournament title in program history while also advancing to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1995. Chris Mueller also became the first UW player to become a two-time All-American.   Tiemeyer and the Badgers became Big Ten Tournament Champions in 2017 after an incredible run, knocking off Michigan 4-0 in the semifinals and then defeating Indiana in penalty kicks, 4-2.   He earned the honor as one of the nations top assistant coaches first in 2013 after Tiemeyer was crucial in working with head coach John Trask that season to guide the Badgers to their first NCAA tournament berth in 18 years. Wisconsin won 14 games in 2013, the most wins for the program since it won the national championship in 1995.   For the first time in school history, Wisconsin had two top-10 selections and four overall draftees in the 2018 Major League Soccer SuperDraft. Tiemeyer was instrumental in the development of both No. 6 pick Chris Mueller and No. 9 pick Mark Segbers, as UW was the only school to have two players drafted in the top 10 of the first round that year. Tom Barlow was selected No. 39 in the second round to the New York Red Bulls and Mike Catalano was selected eighth in the third round by the Philadelphia Union.   Those were not the only pupils of Tiemeyer to be drafted in the first round though as standout AJ Cochran was the first Wisconsin player selected in the MLS SuperDraft since 2005 and the first player selected in the first round since Mike Gentile in 1995.
