In 2018, McClure netted 11 goals, tied for fifth-most in the Kansas record books.
 
"I'm so excited to be at Indiana," said Young. "Erwin is an amazing coach with so much knowledge and I can't wait to learn from him. Indiana is everything a soccer player would want in a school and I am grateful to the university for this opportunity. It's a beautiful campus filled with so much history and resources, the facilities are top of the line and the support around student athletes is second to none. It's a place where we can truly be successful and I can't wait to get started."
 
Prior to joining the Jayhawks, Young spent three seasons at Texas Tech, serving as director of operations and volunteer assistant coach. As a member of the coaching staff, Young helped lead Texas Tech to two of its best campaigns in program history, as well as three NCAA Tournament berths, including the program's first ever berth to the Round of 16 in 2014. The following season, Texas Tech clinched its first Big 12 Tournament Title.
