Bill Conger Men's Soccer Assistant Coach
Phone: 309-467-6370 Email:
Bill Conger will enter his second season as a member of the Eureka men's soccer coaching staff in 2012.
Conger, born and raised in Peoria, Ill., oversees all administrative aspects of Eureka's men's soccer program and contributes in recruiting and team management. He has also played an instrumental role in Eureka's improved video scouting department.
In addition to his responsibilities at EC, Conger has served as the coordinator of the FC Metro Select Lil' Devils youth program in Eureka since 2008. Conger has two sons, Aiden (15) and Sacha (12). Sacha is the captain of the Lil' Devils' U-12 squad.
Conger owns a master's degree in fine arts from Illinois State University and was the Senior Curator at University Galleries at ISU for 12 years until his resignation in 2009. He is a professional artist that has had his work exhibited internationally in New Zealand, Ireland, Poland, Germany and Austria as well as all over the United States.

"We had to retool to survive…and try to weather the storm," explains Bill Conger, an artist and former curator of University Galleries at Illinois State University, who serves on the Guild's board of directors.
"Artists need stimulus-they need to be able to see art from outside of their immediate region," adds Conger, who chairs the Guild's exhibition committee.
This connection-along with a personal affinity for her work-led Bill Conger to approach her about returning, this time as an exhibitor. Conger was first introduced to her at a gallery show in Chicago in 2006, not knowing she was from Peoria.
"This has been a lifelong investigation for her," notes Conger.
"Bill and I agreed it would be good to pair a video artist with this work," Nesbit explains.
Paired with Nesbit's paintings, Wellhausen's videos offer a parallel sensory journey, evoking the same "kind of ethereal quality of memory," declares Conger. "It's a very different kind of interpretation of a very similar interest.
"The way she blurs the video and saturates the color and creates these very painterly motifs that move…they repeat, they back up, they go forward, they get faster, they get slower," he continues.
"We're interested in renovating the exterior of the Art Guild, as well as the interior," says Conger.
