The last four seasons have certainly been testament to the standard of excellence that Greg Perry has set during his tenure as Head Men's Soccer Coach at Massachusetts Maritime, as his Buccaneers have made three appearances in the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference semifinals and earned the program's fourth straight post-season berth last fall.
The 2017 campaign will mark Perry's 25th at the Academy, and he is looking to take his squad to greater heights in celebrating a quarter century of excellence. He earned his 150th career triumph in November 2014 with a 1-0 victory over MCLA, and the three-time MASCAC Coach of the Year continues to earn accolades and praise as one of the region's top mentors.
Perry came to Buzzards Bay in 1993 and has been a fixture on the sidelines ever since, as he has shattered the school record for career wins along the way. Perry led Massachusetts Maritime to a 4-2-1 league slate in 2014 before falling to eventual conference tournament champion Fitchburg State in the semifinals, as the Buccaneers followed up another highly successful 2013 campaign that saw the program earn its first post-season victory with a MASCAC quarterfinal round triumph over Salem State. Perry has garnered MASCAC Coach of the Year honors on three occasions, the last coming three seasons ago when the Buccaneers recorded eight overall wins and knocked off rivals Bridgewater State and Coast Guard along the way.
A 1989 graduate of Westfield State, Perry was a four-year letterwinner for the Owls after a stellar high school career at Bridgewater-Raynham Regional. He has coached numerous all-conference and all-New England players over the past two-plus decades as well as NSCAA All-America and Buccaneer Hall of Famer Brendan Duggan ’06.
Perry, who resides in Marshfield, Mass., also serves as Massachusetts Maritime’s Assistant Baseball Coach and directs all athletics facilities operations for the department.
