Roger Williams has announced the hiring of Timothy Moody as the women's soccer head coach.
Moody comes to Roger Williams after having spent the past five seasons as the head coach at Potsdam State, where he became the winningest coach in the history of the program with 41 career wins. In 2008, he set a program record with 10 wins on the year, including the program's first postseason victory with a 4-0 victory over Russell Sage in the 2008 Upstate ECAC Tournament.
Construction is also in progress on a $2.15-million turf field at the existing site of the school's Bayside Field. The project also includes seating for 575, including more than 50 chairbacks, state-of-the art environmentally sensitive lighting, a new scoreboard and press box.
This past season, Moody tied the school record for wins again, finishing the year with a 10-10 overall record. He collected his 39th win with the Bears to move into first place all-time in in women's soccer coaching wins at Potsdam.

At Keuka, he went 29-17-2 in his three years as the Women's Soccer coach and was the North Eastern Athletic Conference Women's Soccer Coach of the Year in 2003 and 2004. In 2003, Moody and the Storm finished the year as regular season champions of the NEAC and advanced to the NEAC Championship game. The following year, the Storm would reach the championship for the second straight season.
During his tenure at Keuka, Moody coached three conference Most Valuable Players and his team received the NSCAA Ethics/Sportsmanship Gold award in 2005.
Moody's experience also extends internationally, having played eight years on the semi-pro and professional levels in England. He also spent two years as a coach for the New Hampshire Soccer Association Olympic Pre-Development U-17 Women's team.
