‘Seahorses’ Head Coach Hired to Guide Biola Women’s Soccer

Jun. 26, 2008 By Jenna Bartlo

Todd Elkins has been named the new head women’s soccer coach at Biola University, BU Athletic Director Dave Holmquist announced on Tuesday.

Elkins becomes the fifth coach in school history, taking over the program from Mike Silzer, who resigned at the end of the season. He comes to Biola after three years as the Head Coach of the Southern California Seahorses of the Premier Development League and is no stranger to the Golden State Athletic Conference. He played four years at Westmont College, then was an assistant coach at Biola University. Elkins spent one season as an assistant with the Warriors and another four years as the assistant coach at Biola under Coach Silzer.

“I have gained a strong admiration for Biola over the last few years as an assistant coach and a grad student,” said Elkins. “The four seasons coaching under Mike Silzer’s leadership gave me a good feel for the program and some needed experience to help me take on this new challenge.  I appreciate Biola and the athletic department putting their confidence in me and giving me this opportunity.”
