During her four-year playing career as a member of Stony Brook’s women’s soccer team, Shannon Grogan appeared in 71 matches for the Seawolves.

The Eastampton, NJ-native will be back at LaValle Stadium this fall as a member of Tobias Bischof’s coaching staff. Grogan on Monday, March 9, was named one of the new head coach’s assistants.   

“We are very excited to welcome Shannon back to the Seawolves family,” Bischof said. “She has a high passion and energy for the game that she displayed throughout her playing career here. She is a very bright, up and coming coach and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her with us.”

Grogan joins the staff after being a volunteer assistant on the 2018 America East Regular Season Champions’ squad, helping lead the Seawolves to 11 wins and six league victories.

“I am thrilled to begin my coaching career at Stony Brook University,” Grogan said. “As an alum, I have a strong, personal connection to the university and can say without a doubt that this is a special place. Tobi is an excellent coach with a winning reputation and I am excited to work with him and our players to ensure the continuation of our program’s success on and off the field.”

During her playing days, she was a key figure in helping lead Stony Brook to the America East Tournament Championship in 2012 while leading the program to its first regular-season title in 2013. She also earned America East All-Academic Accolades as a senior during the 2014 campaign.

Stony Brook opens its spring schedule on March 31 when the team hosts Fairleigh Dickinson at LaValle Stadium at 3:30 p.m.
