ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. - St. Bonaventure will conduct a national search for a new men's soccer coach following the resignation of Bill Brady to accept a similar position at Greensboro (N.C.) College, Director of Athletics Dr. Ron Zwierlein announced today.
"We are sad to lose Bill but wish him and his wife Sophia well in all their future endeavors," Zwierlein said. "Bill has led our men's soccer program with class and integrity. He leaves the program on solid footing for the next coach."
The 30-year-old Brady assembled a record of 40-69-2 over his six seasons at St. Bonaventure. The Bonnies earned national rankings twice during his tenure. Brady's club went 8-9-1 this past fall, an improvement of six wins over the previous season. Brady coached nine Atlantic 10 All-Conference players, including Andy Garcia, who will be a senior in the 2005 season. A total of 20 letterwinners will return to the team next fall.
Zwierlein appointed Greg Noblet the team's interim coach. Noblet has served as Brady's assistant coach since August 2002.
Greensboro, which has been to the NCAA Division III playoffs 10 out of the last 11 seasons, announced Brady's hiring last Friday.
