HANOVER, N.H. — After six years as Dartmouth women's soccer head coach, Angie Hind is resigning to accept a position as the assistant coach with the Scottish women's national team.
A former Scottish national team player and coach, Hind will be returning to her native land not only to assist the elite national team, but also to serve as program manager for all girls and women's teams with the Scottish Football Association.
"I would like to thank everyone at Dartmouth athletics for the great experience I have had during the past eight years," said Hind. "This new opportunity allows me to be able to make a difference in the women's game in my home country which is something I am truly passionate about."
Hind spent eight years with Dartmouth soccer, serving as the Big Green's head coach for the past six seasons and amassing a 54-38-8 record, 24-15-3 in the Ivy League. Her team finished second in the Ancient Eight this past season. Her 54 victories rank second only to Steve Swanson's (1990-95) 55 wins on the all-time coaching list.
"While I am sorry to see Angie leave us, I certainly understand what a great opportunity it is to work with the national team in her home country," said Harry Sheehy, Director of Athletics and Recreation. "I appreciate all the work she put in to make us a first-class program and look forward to following her success as she moves on. I know that I speak on behalf of the entire Dartmouth Athletic Department when I wish her nothing but the best."
During her time at Dartmouth, Hind led the Big Green to an NCAA Tournament berth in 2005 and a national ranking as high as 13th in 2006. Hind also helped the Big Green win an Ivy League Championship and earn an NCAA Tournament appearance as an assistant in 2003. As head coach, she mentored 18 All-Ivy players honored 29 times, including three first team All-Ivy midfielders in 2009. Her squads also saw success off the field, winning the NSCAA Team Academic Award for the past five seasons and engaging in a myriad of community service activities.
"I would also like to specifically thank the student-athletes that I have had the pleasure to work with here, and the parents and alumnae for their incredible support during my tenure," said Hind. "I wish Dartmouth athletics and the women's soccer program all the best for the future."
A national search for Hind's replacement will commence immediately.
