About the GK Coach, Joe Brady: 

Joe Brady most recently served as Head Women's Soccer coach at Clark University for 13 years and has 18 years of college coaching experience, club soccer coaching and goalkeeper training. In 13 seasons on the Cougar sidelines, Brady led Clark to eight appearances in the NEWMAC Tournament. His teams advanced to the conference semifinals on four separate occasions, most recently in 2011 and in 2005 the Cougars advanced all the way to the ECAC Tournament Championship before falling to eventual champion Keene State.  Prior to his arrival at Clark, Brady spent seven seasons at his alma mater, Anna MariaCollege, helping build the AMCATS into a conference power and regional contender. He was named Commonwealth Coast Conference coach of the year in 1997 as Anna Maria advanced to its third CCC Tournament title game and won a school-record 17 games. Brady has spent time in the club soccer world with Juventus, Fuller Hamlets, Inter Bandits and most recently NEFC (2012-2013). Brady has served on the Massachusetts Olympic Development Team staff as a goalkeeper coach since 2009 and as head goalkeeper coach since 2013. He also served on the ODP staff from 2000-02. His coaching credentials include a U.S.S.F "C" license, NSCAA Advanced National Diploma and NSCAA National Diploma. 

A 1996 graduate of Anna Maria with a degree in business administration with a focus on management information systems, Brady was a four-year letterwinner and team captain for the AMCATS. Brady was recently promoted to Associate Athletic Director at Clark University. He will serve as the primary administrator of men's and women's soccer, lacrosse and sports information along with additional administrator responsibilities. He will also continue to train the goalkeepers for the women's soccer team.
