ALTON — Since becoming a coach at Marquette Catholic, Brian Hoener discovered it is his kind of place.
Evidently, folks at MCHS like him being there as well.
Hoener, who’s been the girls soccer coach at Marquette since October of 2018, has been hired to become the next athletic director there, replacing Jack Holmes, who plans to retire. The announcement was made Tuesday.
“I’m so excited for this opportunity,” Hoener said. “I expressed interest when the position was announced and they reciprocated some of that interest. I’m very thankful it’s worked out.
Hoener, 45, a former Lewis and Clark Community College soccer player, is a graduate of Fontbonne. He lives in Hazelwood, Missouri with his wife Julie, their three children with another child due in March.
“It’s about the same distance to my new job at Marquette as it is to Fontbonne,” said Hoener, who mentioned that he travelled across the old Clark Bridge many times when he was a student-athlete at Lewis and Clark.
“I remember crossing the old bridge every day,” Hoener said at the time. “I’m excited to have a new reason to cross it.”
