SALEM, OR -- The Cascade Surge are pleased to announce that Gary McIntosh has been named Head Coach for the 2006 season. McIntosh, the head men's soccer coach at Northwest University in Kirkland, Washington, compiled a 41-19 record while coaching at Christian Heritage College (now San Diego Christian College) and was named NSCAA West Region Coach of the Year three seasons in a row.
McIntosh, who produced six NAIA All-Americans while at Heritage, also sent two of those top players to the Surge, Jason Aldous and Carlos Calderson. Aldous was a standout forward for the Surge (1998-99) and Calderson, the new coach at San Diego Christian College, was a top center midfield for the Surge in 1998 and again the past two seasons.
Surge President Dave Irby said, "We are pleased to have Gary on board and grateful to Northwest University for releasing him during the summer to work with us. McIntosh is full-time at the university but is able to free up his time, with university cooperation, to join us."
McIntosh, who holds coaching licenses from both US Soccer and the NSCAA replaces Martin Rennie, who is back home in Scotland.
McIntosh will officially begin his coaching duties at the upcoming tryouts scheduled for March 10-11 at McCulloch Stadium at Willamette University.
