STOCKTON, Calif. - Pacific men's soccer head coach Ryan Jorden has announced the addition of David Stockton to the coaching staff. Stockton joins the Tigers after spending the last six seasons at Cal State Monterey Bay.
"I am very pleased to have David joining our coaching staff," said head coach Ryan Jorden. "He brings a breadth of experience coaching at both the NCAA DI and DII levels and has a terrific track record of recruiting high level student athletes and training goalkeepers who have progressed to playing at the professional level. His personality and individual qualities will be a great fit for our coaching staff."
With Monterey Bay, Stockton helped coach the Otters to an 11-5-3 record during the 2013 season including four shutout victories.
