Northwest Mississippi Community College women’s soccer coach James Beattie has announced the promotion of Brandon Boren to the role of full-time assistant coach.

Boren previously served with Beattie’s staff as a volunteer assistant coach last season, helping the Lady Rangers to a 15-2-3 overall record and the program’s first-ever at-large bid to the NJCAA Division II Women’s Soccer Championship tournament in Tucson, Ariz. For their efforts, Boren and the rest of Beattie’s staff earned Coaching Staff of the Year from the MACCC and Women’s Junior College Division II Mid-South Region Staff of the Year by the United Soccer Coaches organization.

“I really enjoyed being a volunteer assistant last season and I am excited to step into a full-time role,” Boren said. “Our players are smart and are great competitors, which makes them so exciting to work with. We had a great season last year and I am eager to see what this next season holds in store.”

Boren’s other coaching experience includes serving as a volunteer assistant for the soccer program at Hernando High School during the 2021-22 season. He also currently works with DeSoto F.C., a stint that began in July 2021.

As a player, Boren competed as a forward at Mississippi Gulf Coast from 2019-21, helping the Bulldogs to a second-place finish in the MACJC as a freshman. An ACL injury sidelined him during his sophomore season, ending his playing career.

Boren holds an Associate of Science degree from MGCCC and is a native of Hernando.
