"We are thrilled to announce the addition of Tommy Crabill to our coaching staff following a highly competitive national search," said Eph head coach Erin Sullivan. "Tommy brings with him a wealth of recruiting experience, soccer knowledge, and coaching acumen that he has developed while working with some of the great coaching minds of college soccer. Tommy will have the opportunity to bring his varied skills to nearly every facet of our program and we're extremely excited to welcome him to the Eph coaching staff and Williams soccer family."
