CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Former Major League Soccer (MLS) goalkeeper Andrew Quinn has been named a coaching assistant with the Harvard men's soccer program, Carl Junot, the Virginia B. and James O. Welch '52 Head Coach for Harvard Men's Soccer announced.

"I am excited that Andrew will join our coaching staff," Junot said. "He will add strength to an already excellent goal keeping squad.  Andrew is very knowledgeable and has played at a high level.  We're very fortunate to have Andrew and I look forward to integrating his qualities with those of our staff and our team.  Under Bobby Clark (at Notre Dame), Andrew was recognized as one of the top goal keepers in the country and his college success led him into a professional playing career in the MLS."

A 2010 graduate from Notre Dame with a degree in psychology and sociology, Quinn started 37 games in goal, posting nine career shutouts and making 119 saves with the Fighting Irish. He was a four-time Big East Academic All-Star and was a member of two Big East regular season championship teams, as well as squads that reached the Elite Eight in 2006 and 2007.
