Adamson named NISL Coach of the Year

A postseason honor times two for Memphis Americans men’s and women’s coach Corey Adamson, who was named the National Indoor Soccer League’s Coach of the Year for both the men’s and women’s division.  

Adamson guided the women’s squad to a 15-2-2 record in the regular season and to win the NISL 2021-2022 Women’s Championship.

The men’s team went 12-6-1 in the regular season, and made it to the NISL 2021-2022 Championship.

Adamson, who also played for the men’s team, finished second among players in the league in points (36), third in goals (14), first in assists (22) and tied for first in points per game average (2.3).

“It’s been such a rollercoaster of a year for me,” Adamson said. “While I am honored that it is my name attached to the Coach of the Year title, the award truly belongs to the players. Without the commitment, support, hard work and sacrifice of the players, coaches are absolutely nothing.”
