Nate Kalin enters his fourth season at the helm of Marymount men’s soccer in 2022. He was named the fourth head coach in program history in March 2019.
Kalin has led Marymount to a 21-21-4 mark over his first three seasons and the Saints haven’t had a losing season under his direction. Over his 13-year head coaching career, he holds a 101-106-17 record.
During his tenure at Marymount, Kalin has had seven All-Conference selections and one All-Region selection. He and his staff were named Atlantic East Coaching Staff of the Year in 2019.
In 2021, he led Marymount to an Atlantic East semifinals appearance for the second straight time. Leonardo Torres had the best offensive season in program history, setting single-season records for goals (16) and points (39). Torres became the first Saint to earn All-Region accolades, adding the distinction to a trophy case that also included Atlantic East Rookie of the Year and VaSID Rookie of the Year.
In Kalin’s first season in 2019, he led Marymount to its first 10-win season in program history with a 10-10-1 record and an appearance in the ECAC Tournament. The Saints fell to Immaculata in penalty kicks in the Atlantic East semifinals.
Prior to his time at Marymount, Kalin spent a season at NCAA D-I Albany as the first assistant on the nationally-ranked men's soccer team. While he was there, he mentored a squad that went to the America East Championship for the second straight season and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament, defeating Maryland in the first round.
He spent the 2016 season at The College of New Rochelle in New York for the inaugural season of the men's soccer team. In just four months, Kalin recruited a team of 15 freshmen that set a NCAA best record of 16-3 for a first-year program. The team led Division III that season in scoring with 4.3 goals per game, while coaching a freshman that led the country in scoring (30 goals, 20 assists) before being named ECAC Player of the Year and Association of Division 3 Independents (AD3I) National Player of the Year. A record first season also had Kalin named AD3I National Coach of the Year.
The rest of his coaching career was in the Skyline Conference, working with the College of Mount Saint Vincent from 2013-15 and New York University – Polytechnic Institute from 2007-13.
In his first season with MSV, he turned a team that went 2-10-1 in 2012 to 12-5-2 in his first season in 2013, the second-best single-season turnover in NCAA Division III. In his three years with the Dolphins, he posted 33 wins while advancing to the Skyline playoffs in two of the seasons.
His longest tenure at a school was his first head coaching job at Polytech, guiding the program for six seasons, again turning around a struggling history to become a regional contender. He advanced the team to the Skyline playoffs in three of his last four seasons, while posting a program-best mark of 12-5-2 in 2010. He was also named Skyline Coach of the Year in 2009.
Beyond his coaching experience, he was also on several committees for the NCAA including the Regional Advisory Committee and the Soccer Rules Committee.
