“Matt has some great references and immediately jumped out to me with his incredible passion for coaching soccer,” Stannard said. “He played, and won, at an elite college level and has a very good soccer pedigree and comes from a soccer family with his dad being the long-time head coach at Western Connecticut State University. He knows an incredible amount of people in the Northeast region and always seems to be `in the know’, which is a great skill to have. He has a great work ethic and has already proven to be a great evaluator of talent and extremely persistent in everything he does. He brings great energy and enthusiasm and is willing to learn what it takes to be a great assistant coach.”
