BANGOR – Husson College soccer coach Mitch Ellisen was recently named the National Soccer Coaches Association of America/Umbro New England regional coach of the year.
“I was very surprised,” said the 36-year-old Ellisen, who led the Braves to a 10-5-2 record and a berth in the Maine Athletic Conference semifinals. “To get things done this season, all of our players had to raise the level of their games . We were more of a complete team this year.”
Ellisen, who completed his sixth year at Husson, was also the MAC Coach of the Year.
