Dubois was tabbed as the Monks' head coach prior to the start of the 2014 season.

RECENTLY:

In 2016, Coach Dubois led the Monks to what was arguably the finest season in the 27-year history of the Saint Joseph's men's soccer program. In just his third season – and just two years removed from a 5-15 campaign – Dubois guided the Royal Blue to the top seed in the GNAC Tournament, a GNAC Championship, an NCAA Tournament berth, and the first NCAA tourney victory in team history.

Last fall, Saint Joseph's posted a 15-2-6 overall record with an 8-0-1 mark in conference play en route to earning the #1 seed in the GNAC Tournament. In the postseason, the Monks defeated Mount Ida and Suffolk to advance to the championship game and defeated Norwich in PK's to clinch the program’s third NCAA Tournament berth.

In the national tournament, St. Joe's posted a thrilling PK victory over Babson College on the Beavers’ home pitch before falling to Brandeis University – a team that advanced all the way to the NCAA Semifinals – by a 3-0 score the following day.

The 2016 side set new team records for most wins, fewest losses, most ties, highest winning percentage (.783), longest winning streak (8), longest undefeated streak (20), shutouts (16), consecutive shutouts (8), and goals against average (0.41). The Monks capped the 2016 campaign ranked second nationally in goals against average and shutout percentage (.700), ninth in save percentage, and 25th in winning percentage.

Postseason accolades were plentiful for the Monks, as Dubois was honored as the GNAC Coach of the Year while sophomore goalkeeper Blake Mullen, sophomore forward Brett Mattos, sophomore defender Dalton Gaumer, and freshman midfielder JoJo Strobino collected First Team All-GNAC honors, sophomore midfielder Rory Twomey earned Second Team acclaim, and freshman defender Noah Robinson was listed on the All-GNAC Third Team.

PAST SEASONS:

Under the watch of Coach Dubois in 2015, Saint Joseph's registered one of the best turnaround seasons in program history. In 2014, the Monks went 5-15-0 overall, including a 3-6-0 mark in GNAC play. In 2015, with the help of an impressive recruiting class – both in number and ability, St. Joe's went 11-7-1 (6-3-0 GNAC) en route to securing the #3 seed in the conference tournament and hosted sixth-seeded Albertus Magnus College in a GNAC quarterfinal on November 1st.

Facing the Falcons, the Monks scored early and held a 1-0 edge until the 70th minute, when Albertus knotted the match and the contest went into overtime, with the visitors netting the winning goal in the 96th minute.

The 2015 men's soccer side set new team records for goals (48), assists (35), points (131) and suffered just two shutouts all season, the fewest goose-egg efforts against in program history (the 1997 team was also shut out twice). The Monks also tied the program’s single-season win streak record, seven games, last fall.

In his first year (2014) at the helm for the Monks, Coach Dubois led the Royal Blue to a 5-15 overall record and a 3-6 mark in Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) play.

Featuring an undersized roster that was further depleted by injuries as the season wore on, Dubois managed to keep the program’s postseason play streak alive, as St. Joe’s advanced to the GNAC Tournament for the eighth consecutive season after clinching a 2-0 victory over tourney-bound Emmanuel College on the last day of the regular season.

PREVIOUSLY:

Prior to a one-year stint with the Beacons of UMass.-Boston, Coach Dubois worked for two years as an assistant at University of California-San Diego, a program which competes in one of the top NCAA DII conferences in the country. He has also worked with the New England Football Club in Boston and The Catalyst Training Center in San Diego and, in 2012, earned an internship opportunity with the Newcastle United Football Club.

Dubois certainly brings a wealth of high-level playing experience to the position. A native of Acworth, New Hampshire, he played collegiately as a four-year starting midfielder at University of New Hampshire after earning New Hampshire High School All-America and Gatorade Player of the Year accolades following his senior season at Fall Mountain Regional High School. Dubois went on to play professionally for several clubs, including a three-year stint with the San Diego Flash of the National Premier Soccer league and, most recently, the Los Angeles Blues of the United Soccer League. Along the way, he earned ‘Invite Only Trials’ with a pair of Major League Soccer clubs: the New England Revolution (2009) and San Jose Earthquakes (2012).

While playing for the Wildcats under the guidance of long-time Head Coach Rob Thompson, Dubois collected the team’s Glenn Aborn Award – given annually to the program’s most improved player – in 2006, played on a 2008 side that cracked the NCAA DI top 30 rankings, and garnered America East All-Tournament Team honors in 2009. Over four seasons, Dubois tallied two goals and five assists in 56 career matches.

Dubois earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology at UNH in 2009 and his currently working towards obtaining a USSF National ‘D’ Coaching License.
