The University of Vermont men’s soccer team has named interim head coach Rob Dow the newest head coach of the program. Former head coach Jesse Cormier left earlier this offseason to take the head job at Florida Gulf Coast.
The Catamounts wrapped up a banner season in 2016, advancing to the NCAA Tournament and winning a game in the tournament before falling in a double-overtime thriller to Virginia in the second round of the tournament. It was also a great season of individual accomplishment as senior Brian Wright was drafted No. 20 overall in the MLS Draft by the New England Revolution.
