For most of his life, Adrian DuBois and soccer in northern New England have gone hand in hand.
A native of Acworth, N.H., he was named New Hampshire Gatorade Player of the Year in 2005 and went on to become a four-year starting midfielder at the University of New Hampshire.
So when the head coach job at Saint Joseph's College of Maine opened up, DuBois naturally gravitated to it. Previous stints as an assistant at UMass Boston and the University of California San Diego had prepared him.
“At the time, I was just looking for an opportunity to take over a program and lead a program,” DuBois said. “I knew they had a decent tradition of success and had won two championship before me, but when I got here I had work to do.”
