Emmitsburg, Md. (August 18, 2017) – Trevor Singer has been named an assistant coach for the Mount St. Mary's men's soccer program, as announced by Head Coach Bryan Cunningham on Friday.
"I am excited to welcome Trevor to the Mount family," said Cunningham. "He brings a wealth of experience in all aspects of building and maintaining a soccer program. His knowledge and strong ties to the area will be crucial as it relates to recruiting the type of players we need to be successful. He will also be an asset in training, match preparations, and all operations related to our program."
Singer brings over 10 years of collegiate coaching experience with him to the Mount, including the last five as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at George Mason. During his time with the Patriots, Singer helped guide the squad to 44 victories over a five-year span, including double-digit wins in each of his first three seasons with the program. During the 2013 campaign, George Mason posted a 13-3-5 mark and went undefeated in conference play on its way to being crowned Atlantic-10 champions.
"I want to thank Coach Cunningham and the Mount athletic administration for giving me this opportunity to work with them," said Singer. "I am ecstatic to join the Mount community and Coach Cunningham's staff to embark on this unique opportunity. I'm confident we can jump-start this program to national prominence and produce successful student-athletes."
Prior to George Mason, Singer spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Temple, where he was responsible for working with goalkeepers, as well as scouting and recruiting. The Owls made a pair of A-10 Tournament appearances and defeated two NSCAA Top-25 teams during his three seasons. Singer helped develop 11 Atlantic-10 All-Conference players, seven NSCAA Mid-Atlantic Region performers and two NSCAA All-Americans during his tenure at Temple. In addition, one of his players signed with the Philadelphia Union of the MLS, and a pair were selected to the MAC Herman Trophy Watch List.
Before his time with the Owls, Singer worked for a pair of seasons at the University of Maine, where he helped mentor and develop an NEISL All-Star selection and three America East All-Conference performers. Singer also coached captains of the Canadian U15, U16 and U17 National Teams and the Serbian U16 National Team, in addition to coaching a player selected for the U20 Canadian World Cup Qualifying National Team.
Singer began his collegiate coaching career at his alma mater, the University of Massachusetts, after graduating in 2008. Singer served as an assistant coach with the Minutemen, working with All-American and Umbro National Player of the Year, goalkpeer Zach Simmons.
As a player, Singer began career at Rider, where he earned MAAC All-Rookie honors as a freshman, and a MAAC All-Academic Team selection his sophomore year. Singer transferred to UMass prior to his junior year, and helped guide his squad to the No. 22 national ranking his first season. As a senior, Singer and the Minutemen moved up as high as the No. 4 ranking in the nation, and captured the A-10 title before advancing to the NCAA College Cup Final Four.
Single also serves as a regional staff coach for the Region 1 Olympic Development Program (ODP) in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, where he's responsible for identifying players for the regional pool, which eventually helps determine the U.S. Men's National Team.
Before moving to Virginia, Singer was the youth academy coach for the FC Delco United States Soccer Federation in Radnor, Pa. and the head coach for the Maine Olympic Development Program.
