Earlier this spring, UMBC associate head coach Anthony Adams was recognized by College Soccer News as one of the nation's top assistant soccer coaches in the country. College Soccer News annually seeks to recognize assistant coaches across the country that are excelling at their work.
The honor was the eighth from the publication for Adams, who will enter his 19th on the staff at UMBC and his fifth as the associate head coach in 2015. He also has been a successful coach with the USSF Development Academy's Baltimore Bays and is now coaching with the Baltimore Celtic SC..
The Dundalk, Md. native earned four letters for UMBC from 1992-95 and was a starter in the backfield in his final three seasons. He serves as the recruiting coordinator for a program that has reached the NCAA Tournament in four of the last five seasons. UMBC had a banner season in 2014 in which they advanced to the College Cup for the first time in the history of the program.
