MORRISVILLE, NY – Morrisville State Director of Athletics, Greg Carroll, has announced the appointment of Geoffrey Moore as head men's soccer coach for the upcoming 2019 Mustang season.

Moore comes to Morrisville from SUNY Oneonta where he served as a member of the coaching staff for the past 10 years. Responsible for recruiting, he was instrumental in assisting in building the Red Dragons into a nationally recognized program that included several appearances in the NCAA Division III Championship Tournament, along with three Final Four stints. During his time with Oneonta, the squad collected five total State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) titles, along with seven straight appearances within the NCAA tournament.

Alongside recruiting, Moore was involved in all facets of the program in training on the field, working with both goalkeepers and field tactics, while assisting off the field in the oversight of academic progress of student-athletes, video review and travel arrangements.

His efforts with the Red Dragon staff didn't go unnoticed as he was honored with the 2014 NSCAA Regional Assistant Coach of the Year award, as well as the SUNY Oneonta Athletic Department Assistant Coach of the Year honor after putting together a 21-1-2 slate on the field.

"Were it not for the reputation the program has for sportsmanlike play, its history of success on the field and appreciation for playing the game the way it was meant to be played, we would never have been able to attract someone like Geoff for this position," said Carroll.

"We have been playing SUNY Oneonta for the past several years and have seen firsthand the way their players conduct themselves, as well as the integrity of the coaching staff," Carroll commented.

"Both {Morrisville and Oneonta} staffs' have shared the same priorities and values when it comes to their respective programs. Geoff is the perfect person to continue the work that Kyle Graves has put into the program for the past 10 years, and we are extremely grateful to find someone with his talent and coaching ability, and to be able to add him to our coaching staff."

Moore served as head coach of the SUNY Delhi Broncos for four seasons before joining the Oneonta staff, where he was twice named the Mountain Valley Conference Coach of the Year. During his time on the Bronco sidelines his squad posted a collective 39-22-4 overall record.

The graduate of SUNY Delhi earned his United Soccer Coaches Association Regional Coaching Diploma in 2007, and the following year his National Coaching Diploma.

Actively involved in the soccer community, Moore has served as the Co-Director twice for the SUNY Cortland ID Camp, and currently serves as the head coach of the New York State East Olympic Development Program where he is responsible for coaching and training the U16 squad.

"I would like to thank Mr. Greg Carroll and the rest of the search committee for entrusting me with the responsibility of leading the Morrisville men's soccer program. Morrisville has proven over the last several years to be one of top teams in the NEAC thanks in large part to the excellent job done by coach Graves. I look forward to the challenge of continuing this standard of excellence."

Morrisville will get the preseason underway Saturday.

SUNY Morrisville's curricula are enriched with applied learning and pave the way for opportunity at both the Morrisville and Norwich campuses. An action-oriented, interactive learning lab, the college is a national leader in technology and has been lauded for its exemplary, innovative and effective community service programs.
