RICHMOND, Ind. – Former Ferrum College men’s soccer standout Aaron Gustine has been named the new head coach at NCAA Division III Earlham College.

Gustine is the program’s seventh head coach.

Gustine, who earned all-conference and all-state accolades during his Ferrum playing career, recently completed his fourth year as Earlham’s assistant coach under previous head mentor Sam Byrd.

“We are looking forward to seeing the level of excellence rise within our men’s soccer program and the lives of our student-athletes transformed under Aaron’s leadership,’’ said Julie Kline, Earlham’s senior director of athletics, in a prepared statement.

Gustine time on Earlham’s staff includes the 2015 campaign when the Quakers posted a 9-7-1 overall record and 6-2-1 mark in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference for a third-place finish.
