Kyle Schmid Named Assistant Coach For LMU Men's Soccer

June 19, 2018

LOS ANGELES – Loyola Marymount has hired Kyle Schmid as an assistant coach for the men’s soccer team. Schmid most recently served as an assistant coach at CSU Fullerton for three seasons. Schmid has also held assistant coaching positions at UC Irvine and CSU Northridge while gaining experience at the club and youth levels with various programs as well. He is no stranger to LMU, as he worked with the Lions as a volunteer assistant coach in 2013-14.

“Kyle Schmid is a fantastic addition for the staff of LMU men’s soccer,” Lions head coach Paul Krumpe said. “He knows the campus as he has been here as a volunteer in the past and has spent the past several years developing his craft at UC Riverside and CSU Fullerton. Kyle has already hit the ground running and is up to speed in almost every aspect of LMU soccer. I look forward to watching Kyle help us win a WCC Championship this season.”

Schmid graduated from UC Irvine, earning a bachelor’s degree in social ecology with a concentration in psychology and social behavior. He played in 56 career games for the Anteaters and was an All-Big West Second Team Selection in 2008. In the same year, he was part of UCI’s team that won the Big West Championship and made it to the Round of 16 in the NCAA Division I Tournament, which marked the first NCAA tournament appearance in school history.

“I want to thank Paul Krumpe and the administration at LMU for this incredible opportunity to be part of the Lion athletics family,” Schmid said. “Paul and Mike [Oseguera] have laid a great foundation during their time here, and I am excited to get started on this journey to help build something special with this staff for many years to come.”

 

 

“I’d also like to thank my wife, Rachel, and my family for all the support they have given me throughout my coaching career,” Schmid added.

Schmid resides in Orange, Ca. with his wife, Rachel, and two sons, Elliott and Arthur.
