Matt Cooper

Matt Cooper was hired as Huntingdon’s head men’s soccer coach in June 2015.

In 2022, the Hawks had a tough season entering a new conference, the Collegiate Conference of the South. The team did not make a conference tournament appearance and posted a win against Centenary.

The 2021 season was the third consecutive year for the Hawks making the USA South Conference Tournament with an overall record of 6-9-2 and conference record of 2-2-2.

In 2020 the Hawks posted a .500 season with an overall record of 4-4 and an appearance to the USA South West Division Tournament- First Round against Covenant College.

In his first season, Cooper led Huntingdon to its first appearance in the USA South Athletic Conference Tournament. In 2019, Cooper’s Hawks tied the program’s NCAA-era record for wins in a season. The 2019 team put together a 7-10 record and scored 36 goals, the second most for the Hawks during the NCAA era.

Cooper’s Huntingdon teams have produced three All-Conference selections and 58 Academic All-Conference selections.

Before Huntingdon, Cooper spent nine seasons as an assistant coach at the Division III level. From 2006-2014, Cooper served as an assistant at Hampden-Sydney College. Working under head coach Josh Laux, the Tigers’ all-time winningest coach, Cooper was a part of 91 wins during those nine seasons, seven winning seasons and a school-record 16 win-season in 2009.

A 2006 graduate of Randolph-Macon College, Cooper comes to Huntingdon after a short stint at his alma mater. He was hired as an assistant at Randolph-Macon in the spring of 2015 when Laux, also a Randolph-Macon graduate, left Hampden-Sydney to become the Yellow Jackets’ head coach.

As a player, Cooper was a four-year starter for Randolph-Macon. He was a three-time All-Conference selection in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference, two-time Regional All-American and a two-time Virginia Sports Information Director’s All-State selection.

Cooper and his wife Anne have a son, Heath Ryan Cooper, who was born Aug. 4, 2014.
