Harmon becomes the sixth coach in school history, as the program will enter its 41st season next fall. The Allen, Texas, native spent last season coaching the women’s soccer program at Redlands Community College. He helped the Cougars to an 8-8 record in their inaugural season with a roster made up entirely of freshmen. He helped the team to a third place finish in the NJCAA, and coached two All-Region players.

Prior to his position at Redlands, Harmon served as the men’s and women’s coach at Eastern Oklahoma State College for one season. In that season with the Mountaineers, he accumulated a record of 15-14-3 with both programs, as he became the school’s all-time winningest coach with the women’s team. He coached four All-Region players, and helped both programs reach the conference semi-finals in the postseason.

“I’m looking forward to getting players for four years, and developing them into better young men off the field.” Harmon said. “Above everything else, I want to be a mentor to these athletes, and help them strengthen their relationship with Christ. I want to give them all of the tools they need to graduate, and bring out their full potential on the field as they compete.

My goal is to rejuvenate the program, and bring some new life and energy back to SNU’s rich tradition on the soccer field. I can’t wait to get started with these guys.”

Trevor also helped kick start the men’s soccer program at Rose State College in the fall of 2014. He served as the assistant coach and was the head of recruitment for the Raiders. During his two seasons with Rose State, the Raiders totaled a record of 26-10, as they were nationally ranked and reached the finals of the NJCAA playoffs.

Harmon played four seasons at the collegiate level at Oklahoma City University where he graduated in 2013. He was a three-year starter for the Stars, and was also the captain of the team.
