Ewan Seabrook

Ewan Seabrook enters his fifth year as head coach of the Colby College men's soccer program in the 2018-19 academic year.

Seabrook, a native of Lewes, England, spent six seasons at the University of New Hampshire as associate head coach and four years as assistant coach at Hartwick College.

Before his coaching career, Seabrook played Division I soccer at Iona College and Oneonta State. He was selected to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference All-Rookie Team while playing with Iona.

Seabrook graduated with honors from Oneonta State in 2002 and earned academic all-conference team honors. Seabrook earned his master's degree from University of New Hampshire in 2011.

Seabrook is only the seventh head men's soccer coach since the program was started in 1959.

Seabrook comes to Colby after working with two good head coaches. Rob Thompson spent 21 years at New Hampshire, while Ian McIntyre is the head coach at Syracuse University after a successful stint at Hartwick. Seabrook also worked with Thompson on the Seacoast United Under-18 Soccer Club.

"I've been very lucky to have had two head coaches in Rob and Ian that have given me real latitude in being part of all aspects of running a college soccer program," Seabrook said. "I know that doesn't exist everywhere."

Seabrook helped Hartwick win the Atlantic Soccer Conference in 2005 and earn the program's first NCAA bid since 1995. During his tenure at UNH, the Wildcats were the 2009 America East regular season champions and made the America East title game in 2010 and 2012. A defender in college, Seabrook has worked with the defense, forwards, and goalies during his time as an assistant.

Off the field, Seabrook was involved on the UNH campus. He acted as an ambassador for the UNH White Ribbon Campaign to end violence against women, coordinated student-athletes to appear in an anti-homophobia video for the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, and co-created and delivered a Bystander Education curriculum to UNH's athletic teams.

"It's terrific that part of the fabric of being at Colby and part of the culture is to collaborate across campus," Seabrook said. "It's a strong part of my coaching conviction that we are privileged in athletics and we need to use that privilege to benefit the campus in ways we can."
