Negoesco Stadium ...... Home of the University of San Francisco Men's Soccer Team
Negoesco Stadium is a 3,000 seat soccer stadium located in San Francisco, California, on the campus of University of San Francisco. Named for legendary USF Soccer Coach Steve Negoesco. It is the home field for the men's and women's soccer teams.
USF Soccer Places Six on All-WCC Teams
San Francisco men's soccer was well represented on the 2011 All-West Coast Conference Team as announced today by the league office. Junior goalkeeper Brendan Roslund captured the inaugural Goalkeeper of the Year honors, leading six Dons on the All-WCC squads.
The University of San Francisco, as one of the great traditional soccer powers in NCAA, has enjoyed a great legacy of coaches. Following the lead of Gus Donoghue, Bob Braghetta and Stephen Negoesco, is head coach Erik Visser.
Now in his fourth decade associated with the USF soccer program, Visser has built his legacy by leading the Dons on a remarkable five-year run. San Francisco owns four NCAA Tournament appearances and three West Coast Conference Championships (2004-05, 2008) during the span. The Dons have captured top-20 national rankings four times in the past five seasons. His fellow coaches recognized his leadership by electing him 2004 NSCAA Regional Coach of the Year while league peers tabbed him as WCC Coach of the Year three times (2004-05, 2008).
A True Don
Visser knows the great tradition of USF well. He was a top defender on two NCAA champion soccer teams on the Hilltop in 1978 and 1980. His marking of Indiana's Angelo DiBernardo was a key to the 1978 crown. During his playing career in the Green and Gold, the Dons posted a remarkable 91-6-5 slate, including a 10-2 record in NCAA Tournament play.
After graduating from USF in 1982 with a bachelor's degree in government, he became part of Negoesco's coaching staff.
Associate Head Coach
Hired in 2003, Josh McKay has been an integral part of USF's recent success. Since the beginning of his tenure as an assistant to head coach Erik Visser, the Dons have gone 69-60-11, highlighted by four NCAA tournament appearances and three West Coast Conference titles in the last five seasons. Following the 2005 season, McKay was promoted to the position of associate head coach.
From 1996 to 2002, McKay played an impressive 153 contests in the professional ranks as a member of the Colorado Rapids of the MLS and the USL's Richmond Kickers. With the Kickers in 1997, McKay accumulated 10 points on four goals and two assists. As McKay competed on the roster from 1997 to 2002, Richmond took no worse than third in their division. In 1998 and 2001, the Kickers were crowned division champions and finished as league championship runner-ups in McKay's final season.
Known as a 'tremendous left-sided threat coming out of the back field', McKay was part of a tough Kickers defense which in 2000 recorded 13 shutouts and allowed only 25 goals. At that time Head Coach Leigh Cowlishaw said of McKay, "[Josh is a] proven A-League professional who leads by example." During his time with Richmond, McKay also served as the Kickers' Youth Soccer Club's Coach and Assistant Technical Director for three seasons.
Former Stanford assistant coach Dan Chamberlain was named to the coaching staff at the University of San Francisco in January, 2010 by head coach Erik Visser. Chamberlain arrives on the Hilltop after helping the Cardinal to a 12-6-2 overall record and a berth in the 2009 NCAA Tournament. Chamberlain will serve as the recruiting coordinator for Dons soccer.
Since 2004, USF has captured three West Coast Conference Championships and advanced to four NCAA Tournaments. Three Dons have been drafted by Major League Soccer since 2007.
Before his brief stint at Stanford, Chamberlain spent three seasons as the head men's soccer coach at UC Santa Cruz, where he compiled a 44-14-2 record and twice led the Banana Slugs to the NCAA Division III playoffs. In 2006, UCSC registered a national-leading 20 shutouts and led the nation in goals-against average while advancing to the NCAA Round of 16.
