HANOVER, N.H.– Dartmouth head coach Chad Riley has completed his staff with the hiring of Ryan Fahey and announced the promotion of assistant coach Chase Wileman to first assistant on Tuesday (June 11).
“I fully believe we have been able to put a great staff together, and we are all excited about the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead,” said Riley. “We will all be working hard to help our team maximize its potential in all aspects, as well as to lead a program that makes all of Dartmouth proud.”
Wileman moves into the first assistant spot after serving the past two years as the Big Green’s second assistant. In 2011, he helped the Big Green to its ninth Ivy League title and fifth consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament. This season, under Wileman’s tutelage the Big Green placed second in the Ivy League and posted their second consecutive undefeated home Ivy League slate.
“I couldn’t be happier to promote Chase and keep him at Dartmouth,” said Riley. “He has truly taken recruiting and many other areas of Dartmouth soccer to another level in his short time here. He loves the game, loves the job, and has a tremendous rapport with the players. I know they were thrilled to hear Chase would be staying with us as well.
“He has been instrumental in not only recruiting, but coaching as well. He has tremendous standards for himself and he transmits that to the players through his coaching.”
Fahey joins the Dartmouth staff from Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, where he has been an assistant coach for the past three years, primarily working with the goalkeepers.
A goalkeeper by trade, Fahey helped the Stags to three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances and also served as the Stags Camp Director.
“I am very happy to announce Ryan Fahey as the newest member of our staff,” said Riley. “Ryan comes very highly recommended to Dartmouth. He played for and has worked under former US International and Claremont McKenna head coach, Dan Calichman. He has an incredible work ethic and great insights into the game, specifically at the goalkeeper position. I know our goalkeepers will thrive under his direction.”
In addition to his duties at Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, Fahey served as the Chivas USA Youth Academy goalkeeper coach and served as a trainer at CATZ Sports Performance Center. Fahey has also served as a coach for the Foothill Storm Soccer Club and as private goalkeeper coach.
A 2010 graduate of Claremont McKenna, Fahey was a two-time first-team All-SCIAC selection and a third-team National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-Far West selection in 2008. As a team captain in 2009, he helped his team to the SCIAC Tournament title and a first-round victory in the NCAA Championship.
Fahey holds a NSCAA Advanced Diploma and NSCAA Goalkeeper I and II Diplomas.
