Wright State head men's soccer coach Bryan Davis has announced the addition of Matt Williams as the program's goalkeeper coach.

Williams joins the WSU staff after two years as an assistant coach at Cheverus High School in Portland, Maine. During his time there, Matt helped guide the Stags to two straight playoff appearances. In 2012 and 2013, Williams also spent consecutive winters assisting his alma mater, the University of Cincinnati, with its goalkeepers while they transitioned between assistant coaches.

A 2012 graduate of Cincinnati, Williams was a three-year starter and holds the school record for best single-season goals against average at 0.68 in 2010, while also sitting in second place all-time for career shutouts with 20.

After his college career concluded, Williams signed a two-year professional contract with the Dayton Dutch Lions of the USLPro. In his two years, Williams helped the Dutch Lions go from a two-win team in 2011 to a playoff appearance in 2013 while leading the USLPro in saves. In 2014, Williams re-signed with the Dutch Lions.

"Matt is a huge addition to the program," said Davis. "He brings a lot of energy and knowledge to the staff and will add a good balance to our group. He has a great future in coaching ahead of him and I'm happy that path begins as a Raider."
