BLACKSBURG – The Virginia Tech men’s soccer program has named Patrick McSorley as its associate head coach.
McSorley starts his 12th season as a member of Mike Brizendine’s staff today, Oct. 3, with a season-opening match against third-ranked Virginia.
“Pat is very deserving of the promotion to associate head coach,” said head coach Mike Brizendine. “He’s been instrumental in everything that we do here from recruiting, to managing the budget to 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, McSorley helped guide the Hokies to their fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and the programs’ fourth Sweet Sixteen appearance. The team finished the season 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 when James Kasak was selected 84th overall by Sporting Kansas City.
