Matt Munhall, Head Men's Soccer Coach

Matt Munhall enters his fifth season at the helm of the Oregon Tech Men's Soccer program. In his first four years the team has seen many successes on and off the pitch. The 2015 campaign showed much promise for the young Owl’s in the early season, as they had an opportunity to sit third place in the CCC standings midway through the season, before succumbing to a string of close games falling just shy of making the CCC playoffs for the first time in school history. Over the last four years, Munhall’s athletes have received five NAIA Scholar-Athlete awards, twelve CCC Scholar-Athlete awards, two Second-Team All-CCC and six Honorable-Mention All-CCC accolades, while maintaining a team cumulative GPA above 3.0.

Prior to Oregon Tech, Munhall spent four seasons assisting both the men’s and women’s soccer programs at NCAA DIII Principia College in Elsah, Illinois. In his four seasons as an assistant, the men’s soccer team tallied a 36-26-10 overall mark, while the women’s soccer team accumulated an overall 63-15-3 record. Also during that time, the men's program received a top-10 national ranking and produced an NSCAA All-American Midfielder, while the women made three NCAA National Tournament appearances.

Munhall also had a short stint assisting at NCAA DII St. Anselm’s College in Manchester, NH, while also heading the New Hampshire State Champion U18 Girls Seacoast United Club team and working with the New Hampshire Olympic Development Program U14 boys.

In his playing days, Munhall was a goalkeeper and four-year soccer and two-year track and field letter winner at Principia College from 2004-07. He was a two time team captain and in his senior year (2007), he led his team to the second round of the NCAA National Tournament and earning NSCAA All-Region and SLIAC All-Conference accolades along the way.

In addition to his coaching experience, Munhall hold a Master of Science degree in Recreation and Sports Sciences from Ohio University in Athens, OH. He also holds his NSCAA National and Advanced National Coaching Diploma’s.
