Haverhill, MA (January 17, 2019) - Northern Essex Community College Director of Athletics Dan Blair has announced Eusebio Marote has been named head coach of the Knights reestablished men's soccer program and will begin his duties on January 23rd.
"I'm very grateful and beyond excited for this new challenge of leading the men's soccer program at NECC. My goal is to build a competitive program as quickly as possible and foster an environment of success for our student-athletes both on and off the field," said Marote. "I look forward to getting started and getting to know the NECC community."
Prior to building the Knights program, Marote has coaching experience with the Hampshire United Soccer Club, Sidekick Soccer Academy and Portuguese American Soccer Academy.
A native of Lowell, Marote, had a successful playing career at Lowell High School before moving on to Daniel Webster College, where he served as a three-year captain of the program and was twice named to the New England Collegiate Conference All-Conference 2nd Team. The Eagles captured three conference titles in Marote's four seasons and made three appearances in the NCAA Division III Tournament. His 75 games played over four seasons was a Daniel Webster school record. Marote graduated from Daniel Webster in 2017 with a degree in Sport and Fitness Administration/Management.
"I'm happy to welcome Eusubio to the NECC community. He has come to us highly regarded as a young up and coming coach who I believe will do an outstanding job building a successful program from the ground up," said Blair.
The Northern Essex Community College men's soccer program will take to the field in the fall of 2019 for the first time since the college previously disbanded the program in the mid 1990's.
