Syracuse University women’s soccer team adds Brandon DeNoyer to coaching staff
SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Syracuse University head women’s soccer coach Nicky Adams has announced that Brandon DeNoyer has joined her staff as an assistant coach.
DeNoyer joins the Orange after spending the past two seasons as an assistant at Richmond.
“I am very excited to have Brandon join our Syracuse Soccer Family,” Adams said. “Brandon brings great knowledge and experience to our program and will specialize in working with our goalkeepers. Brandon is a tireless worker with high energy and passion and will be a tremendous addition to our staff and program!”
DeNoyer helped Richmond go from two wins in 2018 to seven last season. He worked with the Spiders’ goalkeepers, who posted a combined four shutouts, a 1.46 goals-against average and a .771 save percentage.
Prior to his stint at Richmond, DeNoyer served as an assistant coach at Mississippi State for one season, helping the Bulldogs to a 9-5-4 mark. Under his tutelage, goalkeeper Catalina Perez earned All-America honors and Mississippi State allowed just 19 goals in 18 games. DeNoyer, a native of Scotia, N.Y., also served as the top assistant at Siena from 2011-16. During his tenure, the Saints won the 2015 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title and earned a bid to the NCAA Tournament. In addition, DeNoyer mentored 2014 MAAC Goalkeeper of the Year, Taylor Booth.
“I am extremely excited that I have the opportunity to join such a hardworking and experienced staff,” DeNoyer said. “I really appreciate Nicky for believing in me and allowing me to assist her in working with such a talented group of women. I am very proud to be a part of Syracuse University and can’t wait to get to work.”
DeNoyer played from 2004-08 at SUNY Old Westbury, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in media communications and American studies. He stayed on at his alma mater for four seasons, serving as an assistant coach for the men’s soccer squad and as a volunteer goalkeeper coach for the women’s soccer program.
An experienced club coach, DeNoyer holds Regional, National, and Advanced National diplomas from NSCAA, and a United States Soccer Federation “D” License.
