University of the Pacific men’s soccer adds 2 assistant coaches

STOCKTON, Calif. – University of the Pacific head men’s soccer Coach Adam Reeves announced the addition of two Assistant Coaches, in Brian Lanoye and Luis Trejo.

Lanoye and Trejo bring a combined 14 years of coaching experience at the collegiate level for Reeves. Hailing from coaching backgrounds in the Big West and West Coast Conference, Reeves welcomes Lanoye and Trejo to his staff approaching the brink of the 2019 season.

Brian Lanoye:
Lanoye joins the Pacific men’s soccer coaching staff following a two-year role as an assistant and goalkeeper coach at UC Irvine. Lanoye would help lead UCI to a 11-6-4 record last season en route to a Big West Conference regular season title and NCAA Tournament birth. Irvine would take a first round victory in PK’s over Grand Canyon University before falling to No. 9-ranked Stanford in the second round.

Lanoye reunites with Coach Reeves after spending two successful campaigns as a member of the Cal Poly Pomona coaching staff. The Broncos reached the NCAA Division II Tournament in each year finishing as the National Championship runner-up in 2015. In the two seasons, the program produced five All-Americans and, in 2016, set a school record for shutouts.

Prior to his time at CPP, Lanoye coached at his alma mater, Cal State Fullerton, spending eight seasons on the Titans’ coaching staff. Lanoye began as an undergraduate assistant in 2006 was promoted to graduate assistant and goalkeeper coach in 2010. The Titans earned a Big West Tournament title in 2014 along with tying the school record for shutouts that season.

Lanoye completed his education at Cal State Fullerton in 2013 receiving a Master’s of Science in Kinesiology and Sport Psychology building on his Bachelor’s of Science, also in Kinesiology, he acquired in 2010.

“I am thrilled to be reunited with Brian after a few years apart,” Reeves said. “Watching his continued growth and development at UC Irvine made my decision to bring Brian to UOP an easy one. Brian’s ability to train our goalkeepers will be invaluable to the success of our group moving forward and his education in the sport psychology field will be very important to the entire team. His work with the entire group and individuals in their ability to manage the day-to-day stressors that student-athletes face will pay dividends immediately.”

Luis Trejo:
Trejo joins the Tigers’ coaching staff following three full seasons at the University of San Francisco. Trejo also served as the boys Technical Director of San Jose Surf, a youth soccer development club in the Bay Area.

Aiding the Dons to a West Coast Conference title in 2017, Trejo would help USF to a 10-9 record that year and NCAA Tournament bid before falling to No. 4 ranked Louisville in the second round. On that run the Dons earned their first win in the NCAA Tournament since 1994, in a 2-1 comeback win over Cal.

Trejo spent two years as an assistant at the U16 and U18 levels with the San Jose Earthquakes Academy from 2014-2016, helping lead the team to the academy finals during the 2014-15 season while making academy playoff appearances with both squads in 2015-16. He was also the head coach of the San Jose Earthquakes 99 PDA where his team won the State Cup in 2014-15.

“I am excited to welcome Luis to the University of the Pacific,” stated Reeves. “His ability to recruit elite student-athletes, especially in the Northern California market, experience running day to day operations of a quality Division I program, and his detail on the field made him an easy choice to work alongside.”

No stranger to the collegiate level and above, Trejo was a volunteer assistant at Cal Poly during the 2014 campaign before helping the Burlingame Dragons win the PDL Southwest Division championship as the team’s goalkeeper coach in 2015.

As a collegian, Trejo was an All-American goalkeeper at De Anza College before transferring to San Diego State, where he made NCAA Tournament appearances with the Aztecs in 2005 and 2006. Trejo earned his B.A. in business administration from San Diego state in 2007.

“Luis has a great reputation throughout the West region, and is also a coach with great leadership and character. He will be integral in helping push the program to continued success,” said Reeves.
