Justin Serpone
Head Coach

In his ninth season leading the Amherst College men’s soccer team, head coach Justin Serpone directed the Purple & White to a phenomenal and historical season that culminated in the program’s first-ever national title.

Since taking the reins in 2007, Serpone has amassed a superb 138-17-24 overall record which includes four NESCAC championships (2008, 2011, 2012, 2013); nine appearances in the NCAA Division III Championship tournament; eight Sweet 16 berths; four Elite 8 appearances; a pair of Final Fours; and the program’s first national championship in 2015.
