PIKE CREEK, Del. – Ryan Dixon, formerly the head men’s soccer coach of Delaware Tech Terry, was announced the new assistant men’s soccer coach at Goldey-Beacom College.
“Ryan has had a successful experience as head coach at DelTech Terry,” 14th year head coach Dr. Michael Finizio said. “He would like to extend his horizon of coaching skill at a four-year school level where it will be easier to work systematically toward objectives. His dedication and enthusiasm for this plan are strongly supported by a proven ability of working well with student-athletes.”
Dixon coached the DelTech Terry Hawks for three seasons and guided the team to a 7-9 season in the Fall 2010. Eight different players on Dixon’s 2010 squad were ranked regionally in scoring, and his goalkeeper, Christian Wydeven, was ranked third in the region.
Dixon graduated from Rowan University with a degree in Health and Exercise Science. As a goalkeeper for the men's soccer team, he helped lead Rowan to two New Jersey Athletic Conference championships and four appearances in the NCAA Division III championship tournament. While at Rowan, he had the opportunity to play in the NCAA final four and national championship game.
He went on to earn his master's degree in Health, Physical Education and Recreation from Emporia State University in 2010. He has his USSF D license and his NSCAA National Goalkeeping diploma. He coaches local club soccer and is a teacher at Smyrna High School. Dixon resides in Dover with his wife and three children.
“I’m very grateful for the opportunity to coach at Goldey-Beacom,” Dixon said. “I look forward to working with Coach Finizio and the entire athletic staff. I can’t wait to start the season and begin training with the team.”
