Chad Hardin

Chad Hardin enters his second season as head women's soccer coach at Earlham College for the 2017 season.

Cherrah Barlay and Sari Stissi earned Honorable Mention All-Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) honors in 2016 under Hardin's leadership. Stissi led the conference in total saves and averaged eight saves per game.

Hardin has experience working at the collegiate level as he spent nine years working at Marian University in Indianapolis. From Sept., 2006 to Nov. 2009, Hardin served as the assistant women's soccer coach. The Knights achieved a 54-17-4 record during that time as well as winning consecutive conference championships in 2008 and 2009.

Hardin then moved into the head men's soccer role at Marian, a position, he held for five years. Hardin turned around a program that was 6-27-2 in the two years before taking over and turned the Knights into a winning program with a record of 43-42-5 in five seasons. Hardin also served as head men's and women's bowling coach for five years.

After Marian, Hardin arrived at Scecina Memorial High School in Indianapolis where he served as head boys' soccer coach from Nov., 2014 to Feb. of 2016. Hardin took a squad that had won just two games the season before he arrived and quadrupled their win total in one season. The Crusaders advanced to the sectional championship game that season.

Hardin graduated from Indiana University in 2000 with a degree in Kinesiology. He later earned his middle school and high school teaching license from Marian in 2003.

Hardin and his wife Amanda reside in Indianapolis.
