Ben Stoddard- Assistant Coach
Ben Stoddard will enter his fourth season with Oregon State in 2017, and his second in the role of associate head coach. He came to OSU after serving two years as the graduate assistant coach for Indiana Wesleyan University (NAIA).
In his first season with the Beavers, Stoddard helped lead Oregon State to the best season in school history, as the team won 12 games en route to its first ever NCAA Tournament win. OSU players picked up some hardware along the way, as senior Khiry Shelton earned All-America and Pac-12 Player of the Year honors, and Timmy Mueller was named the conference's Freshman of the Year.
In his second season with Oregon State, Stoddard helped the Beavers reach a number of new milestones. The assistant coach aided in leading a young OSU team to marquee wins over Marquette and Michigan State, as well as the program’s first win over UCLA in a decade. For their efforts, the Beavers notched a trio of All-Pac-12 honorees, including First Team recognition for forward Timmy Mueller.
Stoddard, a graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU), assisted the IWU men’s soccer program from 2012-2014. He worked in all facets, helping lead IWU to their two best seasons in program history. In 2012 and 2013 IWU won back-to-back regular season conference championships, and in 2013 they also won the tournament championship, which ultimately led to their run to the NAIA Sweet 16. In his two years, Stoddard helped guide IWU to a record of 28-8-7 and a consistent national ranking within the NAIA top 15.
In addition to his coaching duties at IWU, Stoddard also served as the U-16 and U-17 boys’ age group director and elite team coach for Carmel United Soccer Club, which is considered one of the premier clubs in the Midwest region. Stoddard also was an assistant coach for the Indiana Fire DA. While an undergrad, Stoddard coached for the Marion Lightning SC, helping guide their U-17 boys team to their first ever state championship in 2011.
Stoddard played soccer for Gardner-Webb University (NCAA Division 1) before transferring to IWU in 2009. He received All-Conference and Academic All-American honors during his tenure with both teams, and served as team captain at IWU. During Stoddard’s collegiate career he also played PDL for two summers with the Cascade Surge (Salem, Ore.) and Northern Virginia Royals. He graduated high school from Darlington School in Rome, Georgia while playing for Chad Liddle at the Darlington Soccer Academy.
Stoddard earned his Master's Degree in Management through Indiana Wesleyan University. He holds a USSF National 'B’ License and NSCAA Premier Diploma. He was selected to the NSCAA 30-under-30 program in 2016.
Stoddard is married to Heidi, who works as an OT at Good Samaritan hospital. They both reside in Corvallis with their dogs, Norton and Scout.

The Cincinnati, Ohio native helped lead the Chanticleers to Sunbelt Conference regular season and tournament titles last season, as well as an appearance in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Under Teepen’s tutelage, Coastal Carolina placed two players on the Sunbelt first team and four on the second team.

In 2013, Teepen's first year with the Golden Eagles, they were the MEC tournament champion.
