Jeff Soderquist
Season: 17
Undergrad: John Brown (1993)

Jeff Soderquist enters his eighth season as assistant director of athletics and 17th season at the helm of the women's basketball program at John Brown.

As the winningest coach in program history, Soderquist currently holds an overall record of 227-271 (45.6 percent) and has guided the Golden Eagles to three trips to the NAIA National Championships in 2004, 2006 and 2011.

The 2003-04 season was a banner year for JBU as Soderquist's squad won a program-record 21 games, earning him Sooner Athletic Conference Coach of the Year honors. Additionally, the Golden Eagles won 14 conference games, gave up a stingy 55.6 points per game and scored 2,207 total points, all program records.

The 2011 SAC Coach of Character graduated from JBU in 1993, spending two seasons as former head men's basketball coach John Sheehy's student assistant. Recruited by Sheehy to play for the men's program, Soderquist suffered a career-ending shoulder injury his freshman year forcing him to the sidelines. After graduation, he continued to assist Sheehy on the men's basketball coaching staff while taking the helm of the men's tennis program.

In 1994, he was assigned duties as the sports information director before being named head women's basketball coach in 1997.

Soderquist and his wife, Amy, also a John Brown alumnus, reside in Siloam Springs with their son, Breck, and daughter, Kacey.
