Mens Soccer Head Coach Gary McIntosh was named the Cascade Conference Coach of the Year, an award voted on by the leagues coaches. Coach McIntosh earned the award after one of the most successful mens soccer seasons in Northwest Universitys history.
Coach McIntosh led the Eagles to a third place conference finish this season, winning six of their final eight games. Their overall record this season was 7-5-2.
What an honor it is to be recognized as coach of the year by the men's conference coaches, commented Coach McIntosh. We never as a program even talk about individual awards; it is always about the big goal of making the playoffs. I need to thank my assistant coaches for their diligent work, effort, support, patience, and willingness to do anything I needed from them, McIntosh continued. I thank the players for their belief in the coaching staff and the willingness to do what we ask of them; the players are truly what make this program successful. I owe a lot to my wife Laura and kids, for their continued support of me and the soccer program over the last seven years. I want to thank Northwest University for the opportunity to coach and the support they have given me.
Coach McIntosh is in his seventh year as head coach of the mens soccer program and also serves as Northwests Athletic Director. He was previously honored as coach of the year for three consecutive years when he served as head coach at San Diego Christian College from 1998-2001.
