Louisiana Tech Assistant Working with Womens National Team

CARSON, Calif. -- After recently applying for an internship with the US Womens Soccer Team, Louisiana Tech assistant coach Rich Stoneman has been accepted and will be traveling to the Home Depot Center in Carson, Cailf., to help the coaching staff with the team.

Ill be going out there May 21-31, Tech assistant coach Rich Stoneman said. In that period of time, Ill be able to observe the national coaching staff and working with young up-and-coming kids. Ill be involved in training sessions as a standby coach and help nationally renowned coaches with discussions and watching tactics.

Stoneman said this experience will give him a great insight as to how coaches prepare players on a national level.

Im really looking forward to it, Stoneman said. Ive actually coached some of these kids before. Im going to get to see the Home Depot Center and work with kids on a high level.

Stoneman said with all the duties he will be taking on, he is proud to be there as a coach for Louisiana Tech University.

Ill be there as a representative for Louisiana Tech, Stoneman said. Players will get to know me as the assistant coach at Tech, and Ill be able to build good relationships with the kids. Its a good thing.
