Milton Gooding Steps Down as MIT Men’s Soccer Coach
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Following a successful four-year stint as the head coach of the MIT men's soccer team Milton Gooding has announced his resignation. The 2010 New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Coach of the Year, Gooding amassed an overall record of 43-21-6 resulting in the highest winning percentage in the program's history (.657).
During Gooding's tenure, the Engineers compiled a home ledger of 25-5-3, yielding the best winning percentage (.803) among all NCAA Division III New England soccer programs. His squads registered two undefeated seasons on Roberts Field, an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2008, and Institute records for longest unbeaten streak (13 games), shutouts in a season (11), and fewest goals allowed in a season (13).
"Milton is a proven coach and this was demonstrated by our on-field success under his leadership," said Julie Soriero, MIT's Director of Athletics. "Our players respected his knowledge and passion for the game of soccer. I speak for many people here at MIT when we wish him the best."
