Meet Head Coach Peter Haley

Peter Haley Only the seventh coach in a rich soccer tradition dating back to 1906, Peter Haley '77 G '78 will be entering his 27th season of coaching at his alma mater in the fall of 2011. Haley, who earned both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in physical education at Springfield College, currently serves as an associate professor in the physical education teacher preparation program.

A veteran of 30 years on the college soccer circuit, Haley has amassed over 200 wins during his impressive tenure. He was voted the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Coach of the Year in 1999 after leading the Pride to its first NEWMAC title and the program’s first appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 25 years. The 1999 squad finished with an overall mark of 15-6.

Haley, the first of only two players in the program’s history to be named a team captain three times, continues to emphasize player development through hard work, dedication, and discipline both on and off the playing field. He holds both his Advanced National Diploma from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and his "B" License from USA Soccer. Prior to his return to SC, Haley was the head men's and women's coach at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn.

Haley lives in Springfield with his wife, Cathi, who is a nurse in the West Springfield Public School System.
