SEATTLE – (March 7) Seattle University men’s soccer has announced the hiring of Jake Feener as an assistant coach for the 2018 season. Feener, a 2014 graduate, joins Coach Pete Fewing’s staff.

"We are thrilled to have Jake back at Seattle U," said Fewing. "He'll do a terrific job working with our goalkeepers and helping with recruiting. The team is pleased to have an alumni coming back to SU."

Feener has been the goalkeeper coach at Oral Roberts for the last three years. He helped the team advance to the 2015 Summit League finals.

Feener appeared in 51 matches as SU’s goalkeeper. As a senior in 2013, he was named All-WAC First Team after leading the nation in saves with 162. The Rocklin, California, native recorded a 1.38 goals against average in 24 starts. Feener compiled an .821 save percentage and five shutouts. He was chosen WAC Tournament MVP, leading the Redhawks to their first WAC Championship title.

For two seasons, Feener played for the Tulsa Roughnecks of the United Soccer League. He started 28 matches and picked up a USL Player of the Week award.

In 2017, Seattle U won its third WAC Championship in the last five years. It won, 3-2 in overtime, at Washington in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Fewing has guided SU to at least 11 wins in each of the last five seasons-one of five Division I programs to achieve the feat.
