Penn State Beaver athletic director Andy Kirschner announced that Nate Kalin has been hired as coach of the new men's soccer team scheduled to begin official play in the fall. Kalin comes to the campus after spending three years as regional director for coastal soccer on Long Island where he trained some of the top club teams from U-10 to U-17, including three first-division champions.
He also was head varsity coach for the Valley Stream North High School boys' soccer team and led the team to a school record of 10-5-3 in 2005. From 2002 to 2004, Kalin coached at Northern York High School in Dillsburg. During that time, he helped to turn a struggling program into a contender. In both seasons, the team posted 10 plus wins and made back-to-back appearances in the District 3 Quarterfinals. Before that, he was the Nittany Region Scholastic (U-18) Soccer Coach for the Keystone State Games. In 2002 the team won the state title and advanced to the State Games of America, where the team placed second in the nation.
Kalin holds a bachelor's degree in biology from Lycoming College and is a certified secondary education teacher in biology. To reach Kalin, contact Kirschner at firstname.lastname@example.org or (724) 773-3826.
