Entering his 22nd year as the men's head soccer coach, Alan Gordon brings a great deal of experience and enthusiasm to the Owls squad. In 2012, Gordon's squad faced a new challenge as UMPI athletics played its first season without a conference but with dual affiliation in the NCAA Division III and USCAA. The short term result was a schedule with very few home games. A road weary Owls team struggled to a 4-10 record.
Gordon's teams are well known across the state and New England
for their strong defensive pressure and organization.
As a player, Gordon excelled for the University of Maine at Presque Isle from 1983-1987. His excellent play earned him a spot on the All-Conference, All-Region, and Honorable Mention All-American teams.
After graduation he went on to receive his Masters Degree from
Ithaca College in New York.
Gordon lives in Presque Isle with his wife of 19 years, Lisa, son Josh, their two dogs, Rebound and Ranger, and cat Buttons.
