Scott Myers, the recently-appointed head coach of Menlo's women's soccer program, helped the Embry-Riddle women from Daytona Beach, FL to a spot in the NAIA National Championship last season.
Menlo College Athletic Director Keith Spataro said, "I look forward to seeing Scott build the women's program into a conference power."
Prior to Myers' two years at Embry-Riddle, he was a graduate assistant for the women's soccer team at Redlands when the Bulldogs won the 2006 Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title.
Myers also spent time as a staff coach at the Heartland Soccer Club and led the U14 boys to a state title. He previously was a staff coach within the Iowa Olympic Development Program.
"My goal is to run a soccer program that mirrors the success of the academic programs on campus," said Myers.
The Menlo Oaks men's soccer program welcomed Mike Keller as its new head coach. Keller comes to Menlo from the Academy of Art where he was an assistant coach.
"Mike has been coached by some legendary leaders. His approach to coaching will make the difference in our program," said Spataro.
In just its second season of athletic competition, Keller helped guide NCAA Div. II Academy of Art through its first season competing in the Pacific West Conference. Prior to that, Keller spent six years as an assistant at Cañada College in Redwood City, bringing the team to three appearances in the California Community College Playoffs.
"I look forward to working with the student-athletes at Menlo to restore a winning tradition to the soccer program," said Keller.
Keller played soccer at Cañada for two years, helping the Colts to the CCCAA State Championship Game as a freshman. Cañada finished the season ranked fifth in the nation as Keller earned All-West Region honors. As a sophomore he was named Team MVP.
