Bill's background includes extensive experience in athletics administration and coaching on the collegiate, secondary school, and club level, and he brings to Landon not only a real appreciation for athletics as a means of teaching character and leadership, but also a commitment both to boys-school education and to the teacher-coach-mentor model. Bill comes to us from the Haverford School, an independent boys school outside of Philadelphia, where for the last seven years he has served as the Director of Leadership Programming, the head varsity soccer coach, and a teacher of leadership at Haverford itself and at various regional and national programs. Before Haverford, Bill led Division I and III collegiate soccer programs, serving as head coach at Haverford College, Greensboro College, and St. Bonaventure University, and as the assistant head coach at the University of Cincinnati.
He has been active in league, state, and national athletic association work as well, including chairing the NCAA Selection Committee at the regional and national levels for the postseason collegiate soccer tournament. Bill also was the Executive Director of a high-level club program in North Carolina that he grew to include more than 40 teams and has been active in the U.S. Soccer Olympic Development Program.
