THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING BRAD SOUCIE
Brad Soucie is the associate head basketball coach at Liberty University. He began his coaching career in 1995 and has the distinction of serving as an assistant under current Liberty head coach Ritchie McKay every day of his head coaching career. The partnership began in 1995, when the two helped resurrect the program at Portland State, which had struggled for 15 years. Soucie followed McKay to Colorado State, Oregon State and New Mexico, before joining him in his first stint with the Flames (2007-09). Soucie also served with Virginia and returned with McKay in 2015.
Soucie has helped Liberty to three straight NCAA Tournament berths and been an integral part in helping the Flames stay atop the Atlantic Sun Conference.
In August 2020, Soucie’s wife, Kendra, passed away after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018.
On today’s podcast, we talk to Soucie about his journey from playing to coaching basketball, the lessons learned from Coach McKay, learning of his wife’s cancer diagnosis, and the process of grief he has walked through in trusting Jesus to guide him.
1 year ago today the love of my life, Kendra, went to be with Jesus. She filled this world with love, joy, laughter, n passion for Jesus n people. She was always putting others before herself, she lit up a room with her infectious laugh. I love her n miss her so much❤️ pic.twitter.com/uCIkvfmBwe
