Matt Goodman

Matt Goodman enters his first season as a goalkeeper coach for the women's soccer program in 2020.


Goodman was a member of the men's soccer team from 2001-04, leaving his mark as one of the best goalies to play for Husson.

He was named to the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) All-Tournament Team his senior year.
