Dan Roberts joined the Emmanuel College staff during the spring of 2016, becoming just the third-ever Head Coach of the Men's Soccer program.
In his first season at the helm, Roberts led the Saints to an 8-9-2 record while posting a 4-4-1 mark in GNAC play to earn the No. 5 seed in the 2016 GNAC tournament. His squad posted six shutouts to rank second in program history for clean sheets in a single season. In 2017, the squad posted seven ties, a program-record which also led the nation among NCAA Division III programs.
To date, Coach Roberts has coached four players to GNAC All-Conference honors at Emmanuel and qualified for GNAC postseason play all three seasons since joining the staff. The squad also earned the 2018 GNAC Men's Soccer Team Sportsmanship award.
Roberts brings to Emmanuel a wealth of Division III experience as both a coach and a former student-athlete. Most recently, Roberts was the Assistant Men's Soccer Coach at University of Massachusetts Boston, where he helped lead the Beacons to a Little East Conference Championship and to an appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 2015. Prior to the 2015 season at UMass Boston, Roberts was the Assistant Coach at COF rival Wentworth Institute of Technology for two years.
As a collegiate player, Roberts was a four-year member and two-time team captain of the Bridgewater State University Men's Soccer Team. He earned All-MASCAC honors three years in a row and represented the men's soccer team on BSU's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) for three years.
Roberts also has a great deal of club coaching experience and is currently affiliated with the FC Boston Bolts program. He has prior experience as the Training Director for the Commonwealth Football Coach and as an Assistant Coach at Canton High School.
Roberts works full-time as the Clemente Field Coordinator and Equipment Manager at Emmanuel and resides in Quincy, MA.
