After national title season, Syracuse men’s soccer coach Ian McIntyre signs contract extension
Syracuse, NY – After leading the Syracuse men’s soccer team to their first national title in school history, SU men’s soccer coach Ian McIntyre has signed a contract extension with the ‘school.
The school called it a “long-term extension.” It did not include the terms of the contract. As a private school, Syracuse traditionally does not publish the length of its coaches’ contracts.
McIntyre is one of only three coaches in ACC history to win a division title, tournament title and national title in the same season.
“Coach McIntyre has elevated Syracuse’s men’s soccer program to unprecedented heights,” Syracuse athletic director John Wildhack said in a news release. “He will continue his tenure at Syracuse into the future, developing and building strong relationships with student-athletes and members of our greater Syracuse community. McIntyre is a great ambassador for Syracuse athleticism, and we’re thrilled to see him and his staff build on their recent success.
In addition to the domestic title this season, Orange celebrated a number of milestones.
The Orange had five players selected in the MLS SuperDraft, a program record and the most of any program in the country. Syracuse was represented at the World Cup for the first time by Canadians Tajon Buchanan and Kamal Miller. And star member of the national title side Nathan Opoku became the first SU player to sign a contract with the English Premier League on Monday, signing a deal with Leicester City.
