Profile
Anatol guided Stony Brook to a 7-6-5 record in 2017, including five wins in the program's first seven contests.

With a win over Central Conn. State on Sept. 6, 2017, he reached the 50-win mark for his career as a Division I head coach. Anatol helped forward Vince Erdei earn America East Second Team honors, after the senior tallied a team-high eight goals during the regular season.

In 2016, Anatol coached the Seawolves to their highest RPI ranking in program history (43). Stony Brook was the top seed in the America East Tournament, (one of the top conferences in the country for the season) going 4-2-1 in conference play, to earn a No. 9 ranking in the NSCAA East Region.

Stony Brook qualified for the America East Playoffs in 2015, finishing with a 7-8-3 record. During that season, the Seawolves defeated then-No. 17 Hofstra, the highest-ranked opponenet the Seawolves have ever defeated in program history. Anatol helped mold midfielder Serge Gamwanya into the America East Freshman of the Year in 2015. Gamwanya would go on to earn first team all-conference honors in 2016.

In 2012, Stony Brook recorded its most wins in seven seasons, reached the America East Championship semifinals for the fourth consecutive season and finished with an NCAA RPI of 55, the second-highest in program history.

Anatol's veteran 2012 squad enjoyed great success throughout the year, winning seven non-conference matches and then finishing in the top three of America East for the fourth consecutive season. Boasting one of the best offenses in the conference, the Seawolves led America East in goals per game, averaging 1.78, and points per game, averaging 5.11.

Anatol was named Stony Brook's ninth head coach in program history on Feb. 18, 2011. Anatol came to Stony Brook with a polished résumé that includes 10 years of coaching experience at college soccer's highest level, most recently serving as an assistant coach at the University of South Florida.

Anatol was an assistant under head coach George Kiefer at USF for six seasons, helping the Bulls to an impressive 74-33-18 (.664) record, five NCAA Tournament appearances and one BIG EAST championship. In a conference that has sent seven teams to the NCAA Tournament in four of the last six seasons, the Bulls compiled a 36-18-10 (.641) mark in BIG EAST games during his tenure. Anatol helped guide the Bulls to the Elite Eight of the 2008 NCAA Tournament, the program's best-ever finish.
