At HMS, the Indians were the Middle Tennessee Athletic Conference runners-up in both 2017 and 2018.
Galistel also coached travel soccer for one year before focusing on high school soccer.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to grow the program and also grow as a coach. Being as I’ve coached almost every player, I’m pumped to see the future success for boys soccer at Harpeth,” he said.
HHS athletic director Jimmy Mitchell said of Galistel: “He has success with our girls program, and he does everything we ask him to do and more. We are excited to have him leading the boys program as well.”
