Just days after leading the Franklin Pierce University men’s soccer team to a Division 2 national championship, Ruben Resendes has been named head coach of the Bryant University men’s soccer team.
Bryant, a Division 1 program located in Smithfield, R.I., made the official announcement yesterday.
"I am incredibly excited to welcome coach Resendes and his wife Kate and daughters Ainsley and Gabriella into our Bulldog family," said Bryant Director of Athletics Bill Smith. "The interest in the head coach position at Bryant University was incredible, a tribute to the hard work of the coaches, staff, and the members of our men's soccer program. The coaching accolades, recruiting network and proven track record of success that Coach Resendes brings to Bryant made him the perfect fit to lead our program into the future. I would like to personally thank Nate Kronewetter for serving as the interim coach of our men's soccer team this past season and for all of his contributions to the program."
