Moody to lead Roger Williams
Mentor helped SUNY Potsdam set school victory mark twice
BRISTOL, R.I. – Roger Williams University on Tuesday announced the hiring of Timothy Moody as women’s soccer head coach.
Moody joins the Roger Williams staff after spending the past five seasons as the head coach at SUNY Potsdam, where he became the program's winningest coach with 41 career victories. In 2008, he set a program record with 10 wins on the year, including the program’s first conference postseason victory with a 4-0 victory against Russell Sage in the 2008 Upstate ECAC tournament.
Last year, Moody helped Potsdam again tie the school record for wins, finishing with a 10-10 overall record. Nine of his players were recognized by the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) as all-academic team selections.
In Moody’s first year at SUNY Potsdam, his team was honored with the 2006 National Soccer Coaches Association (NSCAA) Team Academic Award. From 2007 to 2010, the Bears were recognized with the NSCAA Team Ethics Award in each season.
Prior to his post at SUNY Potsdam, he coached the women's soccer and lacrosse teams at Keuka. He went 29-17-2 in three years with the soccer program and was the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) Women’s Soccer Coach of the Year in 2003 and 2004. In 2003, Moody and the Storm finished as regular-season NEAC champions and advanced to the league championship game. The following year, the Storm reached the championship for the second consecutive season.
During his tenure at Keuka, Moody coached three conference Most Valuable Players and his team received the NSCAA Ethics/Sportsmanship Gold award in 2005.
Moody’s experience also extends internationally, as he played eight years on the semi-pro and professional levels in England. He also spent two years as a coach for the New Hampshire Soccer Association Olympic Pre-Development U-17 Women’s team.
