Oshoniyi named head coach at A-Sun champ ETSU
[COLLEGE MEN] Former MLS keeper Bo Oshoniyi has been named the new men's head coach at Atlantic Sun champion ETSU. He spent
the last three years as an assistant at Penn State and the two years before that at Wake Forest.
Oshoniyi takes over the program following the departure of Scott Calabrese, the program’s only head coach since its inception in 2008. Calabrese left earlier this year for the head coaching position at FIU vacated by Kenny Arena's return to the LA Galaxy.
Oshoniyi was a two-time All-America goalkeeper at Southern Connecticut, then embarked on a professional career in
the United States that spanned 12 years and included stints with the Columbus Crew and Kansas City Wizards.
He also previously served as director of coaching at Harrisonville Soccer Club
in Kansas City and was the head varsity girls coach at Saint Thomas Aquinas High School in Missouri and the boys varsity assistant at Shelton High School in Connecticut and spent a year as an
assistant at USF.
“Coach Oshoniyi is a proven winner and we believe he’s the person that can take our men’s soccer program to the next level,” said ETSU Director
of Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Richard Sander. “Coach Calabrese set a high standard of success, and Coach Oshoniyi will continue to build on that
winning tradition. He is a high-energy guy with a great personality, and we think he will be a wonderful addition to not only our university but to our entire community.”
