Northeastern University associate head coach Ron Celestin resigns
BOSTON (Via Northeastern University) – Northeastern women’s soccer associate head coach Ron Celestin has resigned from his position, head coach Ashley Phillips announced on Tuesday.
Celestin, who has served on the Huskies’ coaching staff since June 2016, is looking forward to spending more time with his family.
“I greatly appreciate the time I had working with Ron,” said Phillips. “He was an asset in my transition to head coach and for that I am thankful. We had a lot of success during his three years here and I am grateful for all he did to support our players and coaches.
“We wish Ron all the best in whatever the future holds and hope he enjoys some much deserved time with his family and friends.”
Celestin’s coaching career has spanned more than 20 seasons at the Division I level as he previously served on the Princeton women’s soccer staff from 1995 to 2016. Upon arriving at Northeastern, he made an immediate impact on Phillips’ first-year coaching staff, co-leading the Huskies to 14 wins, the 2016 CAA regular season and postseason titles, and an appearance in the 2016 NCAA tournament.
Together with Phillips and assistant coach Alan Goggs, Celestin has helped Northeastern achieve a .617 winning percentage across all competitions during the last three seasons and a .759 winning percentage during CAA regular season matches.
