Marc Frankland 
Academy Director

Marc Frankland has been developing college prospective players in the US for over a decade. Frankland joined the Western Michigan Men's Soccer coaching staff as assistant coach in the spring of 2013, so he understands the level required to play college soccer. WMU enjoyed one of their most successful seasons in their history that season, competing with Akron for the regular season MAC title on the last day of the season and getting to the MAC championship final losing out again to an excellent Akron team. WMU also boasted the 2nd highest team GPA in the country with an average GPA of 3.56. In the Fall of 2014 WMU continued their progression with the help of coach Frankland to notch up wins against Akron, University of Michigan and Butler on the way to the MAC conference tournament. In the fall in 2015, WMU posted a record of 11-4-4 and were ranked in the top 25 for the first time in school history. Overall, WMU holds a 28-20-9 record since Frankland has been on staff at the school.

Frankland began club coaching in the US in 2001 with stints at Clarkston SC and as a director at Force FC before moving to West Michigan to work with Grand Rapids Crew Juniors. During his time with GRCJ (now Midwest United FC), his teams competed at a regional and national level. Over the course of his youth coaching career, Frankland coached Michigan Mr Soccer Dewey Lewis, several Dream Team members and over 60 players that went on to play college soccer. Frankland has former players that have played at every level of college soccer on both the mens and womens side of the sport.

 

A native of England, Frankland is married to the Amanda, the couple resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with their daughter Sienna and son Jax. The rest of his family still reside in the Northwest of the United Kingdom.
