Nick Regan, VMI men’s soccer head coach, has been appointed head coach of the United States ahead of the XV Pan American Maccabiah Games in Argentina this winter.
“It is an incredible honor to be given the opportunity to lead the U.S. National Team into a major international sporting event,” Regan said. “This appointment is a testament to the progress we have made here at VMI over the past year. People near and far are taking notice of what we are building here. It is an incredibly exciting time to be a part of VMI men’s soccer.”
The Maccabiah Games—open to Jewish athletes around the world as well as Israeli citizens—is the third-largest sporting event in the world by number of competitors, with 10,000 athletes competing (after the Olympics and the FIFA World Cup). The Maccabiah Games has been under the auspices and supervision of the International Olympic Committee since 1961 and are held every four years.
Regan, who helped VMI set multiple program career highs in 2022, enters his second year at the helm for the men’s soccer team.
