“First I would like to thank Athletic Director Cary McConnell and the entire Suffolk University Athletic Department for having the confidence in me to lead the Suffolk men’s soccer program,” Maddock said. “I am looking forward to building a soccer program that will make the Suffolk community proud and elevate the program to new levels as we enter the next chapter in the program’s rich history.”

Babson’s six-week stay in the nine-week season in the Top 12 of the United Soccer Coaches New England Top 12 and votes in the D3Soccer.com Top 25 were shining moments, but the highlight came with the team’s first trip back to the NCAA Tournament since 2015.
