Matthew McCormick

Matthew McCormick begins his first season as the Assistant Men's and Women's Soccer Coach at Shaw University.


McCormick joins the Shaw family after serving as a graduate assistant for the Lock Haven University women's soccer program for two seasons.


LHU enjoyed a historic 2018 campaign in McCormick’s second season. The team went 11-5-1, it’s highest win total since 2004. LHU also made the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) playoffs for the first time in 12 years. LHU was ranked as high as 4th in the United Soccer Coaches Atlantic Region rankings during the season, while also receiving national votes on multiple occasions. The brand of soccer that LHU employed on the field resulted in only 88 shots against while the Bald Eagles registered 158 shots for. That translated to a 1.03 Goals Against Average versus a 1.88 Goals For Average, and a +14 goal differential.


McCormick specialized in player development during his time at LHU. McCormick helped guide multiple players to career seasons, including Marah Foltz, who's 17 goals in 17 games were enough to make her the PSAC Player of the Year, Atlantic Region player of the year, and a USC and D2CCA All-American selection. In total, four LHU players were selected to the PSAC All-Conference team (two of which for the first time), the most since 2007.


The Bald Eagles also dominated off the field. LHU was awarded the USC Team Academic Award in 2018 while also placing four on the USC Academic All-Region Team. The women’s soccer team was also ever present in the community, winning the LHU Talon “All In” Award in recognition of the teams commitment to community engagement.


McCormick coached Jordan Shoff who was an All-Conference selection for the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) as a defender. LHU went 6-11 overall and the Bald Eagles finished their run through PSAC play at 5-11 with conference wins over Edinboro, Pitt-Johnstown, Shippensburg, Mansfield and California. The team earned a 2017 United Soccer Coaches Team Ethics and Sportsmanship award. The Bald Eagles earned a Silver Award, which was based on a percentage (silver, 11-30 %) calculated by the total number of cards received by players/coaches divided by the team's total number of games played in 2017.


Additionally, McCormmick's other duties included handing all social media accounts, recruiting, video analysis for both teams, scouting reports and goalkeeper sessions weekly while also assisting the men's program in spring of 2018 and overall goalkeeper traning.


McCormick graduated from Wheeling Jesuit in 2017 with a degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing.


While at Wheeling Jesuit, McCormick was a four-year standout on the men’s soccer team as a goalkeeper. McCormick started 34 games, as he recorded 169 saves a Cardinal.
