Chuck Codd is in his sixth season with the Baylor soccer program after following co-head coaches Marci and Paul Jobson to Waco from Northern Illinois, where he was a volunteer assistant coach. Among other duties, Codd is in charge of goalkeepers and defenders.

"He comes with great experience both as a player and coach, having been an assistant with us and at Northwestern, and the director of coaching for the Chicago Sockers girls' program," Marci Jobson said. "Not only does he know talent, but he is also great at developing the talent he already is working with. Chuck has a magnetic personality and his players love to play for him."

In his five seasons at Baylor, Codd has helped the Bears become one of the NCAA's best defensive squads. As a team, BU has posted five of the program's six lowest goals against averages in the last five seasons, including the lowest mark in 2012 (0.529). The mark led the Big 12, was third in the NCAA and produced a program-record 13 shutouts. The defense played a large role in Baylor earning its first Big 12 Championship title and deepest run in the NCAA Tournament with a Sweet 16 appearance.

Under Codd's tutelage, Michelle Kloss led the Big 12 in 2012 and ranked eighth in the NCAA in goals against average (0.55), setting the Baylor single-season record. She also ranked sixth in the Big 12 in save percentage (.791), which ranks ninth on the all-time single season list at Baylor. Along the way, she posted 9.3 shutouts to lead the Big 12 and rank second on the Baylor single season list. The Bears allowed a program-low 14 goals on the season.

In 2011, Codd was instrumental in helping Courtney Seelhorst post the then-second lowest GAA in program history (0.80). The senior also recorded 10 shutouts under Codd's watch, while the team as a whole tied the then-program record for the most shutouts in a season with 11. BU only allowed 18 goals on the year in 22 games for a 0.82 goals against average.

In 2010, BU surrendered the fewest goals (16) in Baylor history at the time. He also guided Seelhorst to eight solo shutouts on the year, which at the time tied her with Dawn Greathouse for second in most solo shutouts in a season. In addition, her 0.812 GAA on the year ranks her fourth all-time for goals-against average in a season at BU.

During his one season at Northern Illinois, Codd helped NIU to post the program's best record since 1998 at 10-5-5 and advanced to the MAC Tournament semifinals for the second consecutive year.

Prior to Northern Illinois, Codd served as the girls' team director for the Chicago Sockers club team based in Palatine. Prior to that role, he was an assistant coach at Northwestern for four seasons, working one year with the men's program and the final three with the women's team.

As a professional soccer player, Codd won three national championships with the Chicago Stingers/Sockers outdoor team from 1997-2000. Prior to his outdoor stint, Codd spent seven seasons playing for the Chicago Power, Cincinnati Silverbacks and Buffalo Blizzard of the NPSL.

Codd's experience includes being a coach for the Celtics club in St. Charles, Ill., for three years and one year at St. Charles High School. In addition, he spent two years coaching with the Tophat girls' club in Atlanta.

A native of Torrance, Calif., Codd is a graduate of North Carolina State University with a degree in history. While a prep at South Torrance High, he played for the Fram Culver Club.

Codd is married to Charmaine Hooper, a former member of the Canadian National Team who was regarded as one of the world's top women's soccer players. The couple has a daughter, Charlie.
