Schmid, who joined Kylie Stannard's staff in May of 2019, has been a part of two very successful programs in his young coaching career with his teams posting a 47-8-5 overall record. In 2018 as an assistant at Amherst, he helped the Mammoths to 14 victories, including two in the NCAA Tournament, while also serving as the recruiting coordinator.
Schmid joined the Amherst staff after spending two seasons on the Springfield College staff, including serving as the Interim Head Coach in the spring of 2018. Springfield posted an impressive 33-3-4 record during his tenure.
Schmid holds both a bachelor’s degree in physical education and a master’s degree in sports psychology from Springfield. He was a four-year starter for the men’s soccer team, including serving as team captain as a senior.
“Bill comes highly recommended from some top coaches in the college game,” Stannard said. “He’s quite possibly one of the most experienced college coaches in the country for his age. He’s worked for two incredible coaches and top 20 Division III programs at Springfield College and Amherst College. He has experience recruiting and working with top tier academic student-athletes and has been involved with every aspect of both those programs. Bill was recently a finalist for the volunteer assistant position at Stanford, so I feel extremely lucky that we were able to keep him close to home in Connecticut. He’s already hit the ground running and his work ethic and drive will be a huge asset to our program and student-athletes.”
