Davie Carmichael, assistant coach for the last two seasons, was named promoted to head men's soccer coach at the University at Buffalo. Director of Athletics Allen Greene made the announcement Tuesday. He succeeds Stu Riddle who had a 38-32-13 record in four seasons leading the Bulls.
"After speaking with Davie, it became very clear to me that the best candidate for the men's soccer program was already on our campus," said Greene. "Davie has been successful as a head coach in the past and has helped turn our men's soccer program into a contender not only within the MAC but at the national level as well. Since joining the program two seasons ago, Davie has been a crucial part of the team making back-to-back MAC Championship game appearances and we are looking forward to him elevating the program."
Born in Scotland, Carmichael played at Northwood University (Mich.) and Notre Dame College in Ohio. Before joining UB two years ago, he was a vry successful head coach at Lake Erie College in Ohio where his final team there had an 11-5-2 mark in 2014.
Matt Brown will also stay on the men's soccer staff at UB, transitioning into Carmichael's top assistant coach for the 2017 season.
