Mark Snell is a retired American soccer goalkeeper who played professionally in the North American Soccer League and the Major Indoor Soccer League. He most recently coached in the FC Dallas youth system.


Snell graduated from Lockport Senior High School where he was a 1975 High School All American soccer player. He attended Hartwick College where he played on the school's soccer team from 1976 to 1979. In 1977, Snell and his team mates won the NCAA Men's Division I Soccer Championship.

In 1980, he signed with the Edmonton Drillers of the North American Soccer League who sent him on loan to 1. FC Viersen 05. In 1981, he joined the Buffalo Stallions of the Major Indoor Soccer League before finishing his career with the Wichita Wings.


In 1998, Snell became an assistant with Hartwick College.[1] In January 2003, Jim Lennox unexpectedly resigned as head coach of the Hawks and Snell became the head coach. However, the school chose to hire Ian McIntyre before the 2003 season began and Snell left the school. After spending time with the FC Dallas youth teams, Snell became the first head coach of the Fort Worth Vaqueros FC of the National Premier Soccer League in 2014.[2]
