Virginia Tech men’s soccer announces Pat McSorley as Associate Head Coach

BLACKSBURG – The Virginia Tech men’s soccer program has named Patrick McSorley as its Associate Head Coach. McSorley is heading into his 12th season as a member of Head Coach Mike Brizendine‘s staff.

“Pat is very deserving of the promotion to Associate Head Coach,” Brizendine said. “He’s been instrumental in everything that we do here from recruiting, to managing the budget, scheduling and running training sessions. There’s nothing that he hasn’t put his influence on. I couldn’t be more excited about the promotion and the direction that we are heading.”

In 2019, he helped to guide the Hokies to their fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and the programs’ fourth Sweet Sixteen appearance, finishing the year ranked No. 13 in the final United Soccer Coaches poll.

Over the past six seasons, McSorley has developed eight All-ACC selections and has seen four players from the program selected in the MLS Draft. The most recent MLS selection came in 2020 as James Kasak was selected 84th overall by Sporting Kansas City.

The Hokies kickoff their season this week on Saturday, Oct. 3 as they host No. 3 Virginia.

Due to the Novel Coronavirus fans will not be able to attend Saturday’s game. Fans can follow along through @HokiesMSoccer and live stats of the contest will also be available on
