After three seasons at the helm of Stony Brook University’s women’s soccer team Brendan Faherty is taking his coaching talent across the Long Island Sound.

Faherty was named the new head coach of Yale University’s soccer team. The Guilford, CT, native joins the Ivy League school after a Seawolves coaching tenure that twice saw him and his staff named American East Coaching Staff of the Year (2016 and 2018).

He also guided Stony Brook to a berth in the 2017 NCAA Women’s College Cup and an America East Conference championship. In his three years, Faherty finished 31-26-4 overall at Stony Brook and 15-7-1 in America East play.

“Yale University is a special place, and I am humbled to be able to work with some of the best student-athletes in the world,” he said. “I would also like to thank Shawn Heilbron (Stony Brook’s Athletic Director), Patrick Muffley (Stony Brook’s Assistant Athletic Director) and Stony Brook athletics for their support and guidance the past three years.  I was fortunate to work with a fantastic group of young women and I am forever thankful for their trust in me.”

Stony Brook said it has started a national search for a new women’s soccer team head coach.
