Charles Nobles joined the McMurry University staff in 2016, first as an assistant coach for both the women’s & men’s soccer, and then was named as the head coach beginning in 2017. Nobles brought a long and distinguished soccer background to the War Hawks’ programs.
Nobles spent three seasons as the head girls’ coach at Burleson High School. His team made the post-season in two of those three campaigns (after having only advanced three times the previous 13 years in total). His teams showed an improved won-lost record each season, as well.
His teams also got it done in the classroom and community. They won recognition from the NSCAA with its Team Academic Award, as well as its “Golden Ball” for team ethics and sportsmanship. Those team’s also raise better than $4,000 for charity through the Kickin’ Cancer campaign.
Prior to heading the Burleson program, Nobles was a boys and girls assistant coach at Midlothian High School for three years. Both teams advanced to the post-season all three years and won two district championships. For his efforts, Nobles received the 2013 Region 1 Assistant Coach of the Year from the Texas Association of Soccer Coaches.
Nobles has also coached for the Texas Lightning Soccer Club. Additionally, he was a club coach for the Sam Houston State men’s soccer club. He has also been a part of numerous youth soccer camps in the Metroplex, as well as coaching YMCA teams.
He holds a USSF National D License, a NSCAA National Diploma, NSCAA National Goalkeeping Diploma and a Coerver Youth Diploma.
Nobles’ volunteer work includes work with One Goal 23. The organization runs free Christian soccer camps nationwide.
Nobles earned his bachelors degree in political science from the University of Texas-Arlington. The native of Arlington, Texas currently resides in Abilene with his wife (Brooke) and three children (Landry, Paisley and Austin)..
