After eight years at the helm of the Keystone College men’s soccer program, head coach Joe Schneck has resigned to pursue professional interests outside of coaching.
“I feel incredibly blessed to have led the men’s soccer program here at Keystone for the last eight seasons,” Schneck expressed. “The opportunity to build a program while developing young men was what initially brought me to Keystone. I am so proud of all my teams, the bonds that were built, and what they were able to accomplish both on the field and in the classroom.”
“While this was a decision to move closer to family, I have loved my time here at Keystone as part of the campus and local community and I look back on these years with a full heart. I am especially grateful to all of the staff and faculty who have encouraged and supported me and our student-athletes along the way,” said Schneck.
He added, “There’s no doubt my life has been enriched because of the relationships that have been built and though my time here is ending, I know these relationships will continue. I definitely look forward to watching the program grow in the coming years and will forever be a fan of Keystone Soccer.”
Schneck led Keystone to back-to-back Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) Championships and their first ever NCAA tournament appearances in 2018 and 2019. He was also instrumental in his role as the recruiting coordinator for the athletic department.
Schneck was a two-time CSAC Coach of the Year (2017, 2019) and leaves the Giants with a 68-52-6 (.564) overall mark, going 36-22-2 (.627) in league play. The past three seasons, Keystone compiled a record of 38-15-3 (18-3-1 CSAC).
“Joe’s hard work and dedication over the past 8 years not only reflects the type of employee he is but the kind of man he is as well,” stated Dr. Matthew Grimaldi, Director of Athletics at Keystone. “Joe is a true professional who left his mark at Keystone — most importantly with his student-athletes. He has been instrumental in not only the men’s soccer program but the entire athletics department and he will be sorely missed. I wish him and his family the best.”
Schneck will volunteer with the program through the end of the semester and his assistant, Jeremy Longchamp, will continue on as the program’s assistant coach. Any recruiting inquiries can be directed to him at email@example.com
