Mike Noonan is a retired American soccer player who played professionally in the American Indoor Soccer Association and is currently the head coach of the Clemson University men's soccer team.

Player[edit]

Noonan attended Middlebury College, playing on the men's soccer team from 1979 to 1982. He was a 1981 and 1982 Division III NCAA First Team All American.[1][2] Noonan played for the Louisville Thunder in the American Indoor Soccer Association. In 1986, he signed with the Fort Wayne Flames where he spent two seasons.

Coach[edit]

In 1989, he was hired as head coach of the Wheaton College men's soccer team. The team had a 4-11-0 record his first season, but he took them to a 12-5-1 record his second season. This led to a move to the University of New Hampshire where he coached from 1991 to 1994. In 1995, he became head coach of the Brown University's men's soccer team. Noonan compiled a 160-77-31 record with ten NCAA post-season tournament appearances in fifteen seasons with the Bears. On January 5, 2010, Clemson University announced they had hired Noonan as head coach of the men's soccer team.[3]
