[COLLEGE] Dan Donigan has been named the head men's soccer coach at Rutgers, replacing Bob Reasso, who has retired. Donigan a former prep star in New Jersey, leaves Saint Louis University after nine years in charge of the Billikens.
 
"This is one of the most exciting days of my life, next to my wedding day and the birth of my son," said Donigan. "I have to first thank [Athletic Director] Tim Pernetti and the Rutgers staff for doing such a great job throughout the process in making me feel so comfortable in joining the Rutgers family."
 
Donigan posted a 118-42-23 overall record at Saint Louis, guiding the Billikens to seven appearances in the NCAA Tournament, including a pair of trips to the quarterfinals. Donigan began his coaching career as an assistant coach with the University of Connecticut, his alma mater, in 1994. He spent three seasons with the Huskies before joining the Saint Louis staff as an assistant from 1997-2000.
 
"Rutgers and New Jersey have always been a soccer power and I'm just excited to come back home and be the head coach at a program that is so nationally prominent and in a state that has been so well known for soccer throughout the years," said Donigan. "My first goal is to make sure that we keep the local kids in-state and then build the program off of that. Certainly the foundation of this program will be New Jersey kids. I plan to hit the ground running, making contacts and continuing my relationships with the guys I've known since I was a young kid growing up in New Jersey."
 
Donigan attended Steinert High School in Hamilton Township.
 
NCAA Appearances:
2001 - Quarterfinals
2002 - Third Round
2003 - Quarterfinals
2006 - Second Round
2007 - First Round
