Chatham tabs Danley as first men’s soccer coach
Chatham will trot a men’s soccer team onto the field for the first time next year, and the group now has a coach to lead it.
Keith Danley was hired to guide the inaugural program, which will begin play in the fall of 2019.
Danley starts July 1.
“I am eager to begin recruiting the first class of Cougars … who will serve as the foundation of our program as we strive for success in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference and the Great Lakes region,” Danley said in a news release.
Danley coached as an assistant at the University of Scranton in 2016. Scranton went 25-11-1 that year, won the Landmark Conference and reached the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament.
The former Allegheny College standout also served as an assistant for two years at Elmira (N.Y.).
Danley was Allegheny’s defensive MVP in 2013 and played in 55 games in three seasons. He transferred to Allegheny after one season at Babson (Mass.).
