Former coach returns to Bluefield College to lead broadcasting

BLUEFIELD, Va. — Bluefield College athletic director and head men’s soccer coach Peter Dryer has announced the return of Chase Neidig to the BC athletic department as associate head men’s soccer coach and director of athletic broadcasting.

Neidig formerly served as an assistant coach with the BC men’s soccer program in 2011 and 2012 and was also head coach of the women’s soccer program in 2012.

“I’m very excited for Chase to rejoin our soccer program,” Dryer stated. “He understands the game, has a knack for recruitment, and has developed a variety of great ideas for improving the program experience. In addition, he is committed to the Christian mission of the school and program and will impact the members of the team in a very positive way.”

Neidig returns to Bluefield College after spending 2013 in South Carolina, where he coached for the top youth soccer club in the state — South Carolina United-Mount Pleasant.

“I’m so excited to be back ‘home’ at Bluefield,” Neidig remarked. “I can’t put into words how fortunate I am to come back to the program, join student-athletes that I was fortunate enough to recruit who are still in the program, and to continue where I left off in bringing in top talent to the squad. I can’t wait to get started and can guarantee I will work extremely hard to put a quality product on the pitch.”

In addition to his duties with the men’s soccer program, Neidig will also utilize his background and experience in video streaming to head the department’s live video efforts as Bluefield’s first-ever Director of Athletic Broadcasting. He will work alongside the Sports Information office to redesign, implement, and oversee live streaming webcasts and video content for BC Athletics.

“Chase has tremendous expertise and experience in online athletic broadcasts,” commented Dryer. “His leadership in this area will certainly improve the overall quality of experience for our student-athletes, and for those who follow BC athletics.”

Neidig owns and manages Tourbeau Sports Group, a soccer-specific video production company which is most notably known for producing video stream and television broadcasts for some of the top soccer leagues and games in the United States.

Work on a new BC athletics “digital network” is underway, which will allow families, fans, friends, and alumni to catch live action of the Rams. Further details on the plans for video streaming will be available as the fall approaches.
