SVSU hires Andy Wagstaff as new men’s soccer coach

Months after former men’s soccer coach Cale Wassermann left to take an assistant coaching job at Michigan State University, SVSU has finally found his replacement.

On Friday, April 10, athletic director Mike Watson announced that the program had named Andy Wagstaff as the new head coach for the men’s soccer team. He is the seventh head coach in team history.

Wagstaff has over 10 years of coaching experience. Prior to joining the Cardinals, he  spent three season as an assistant coach with Oakland University, a Division I program. Before that, he spent two season with the University of Michigan as an assistant coach. Wagstaff has also held positions with the Michigan Bucks of the Professional Development League and the Oakland University women’s soccer team. The new coach also has international experience. He served as a coach for Bolton Wanderers FC in 1998 and Liverpool FC Academy from 1999-2002.

Wagstaff takes over a team that has averaged over 12 wins a season in its previous five years and will look to improve on the success former coach Wassermann started.
