Coach Fread joined the Colonials after serving as an assistant coach for the Georgetown men's soccer program. In charge of video production, Fread edited and analyzed game film to provide tactical feedback about upcoming opponents. He also assisted with daily training and technical player development throughout the season.
In 2015, the Hoyas had an impressive season with a record of 16-2-3 overall and 9-0-0 in BIG EAST play. The team set a program-record 18-game unbeaten streak including a 14-game win streak. Georgetown also took the BIG EAST Championship title, marking the first time in program history that the Hoyas won the league's postseason tournament.
During Fread's time at Georgetown, he coached two athletes who earned BIG EAST recognition, two All-Americans, and two players drafted 60th and 42nd in the Major League Soccer Draft.
Prior to his time at Georgetown, Fread spent two years at Saint Francis University as an assistant coach working specifically with goalkeepers. In addition to training responsibilities, Fread assisted in recruiting, game analysis, scouting, coordinating game day protocols, travel logistics and managing team gear and equipment. He was instrumental in student-athlete academic development and worked closely with compliance and academic coordinators to ensure student-athlete academic success.
In 2013, the Red Flash recorded their best season in school history. SFU received votes in NSCAA national polls and was ranked No. 1 in the North-Atlantic region for the first time in program history with a record of 11-4-4. The season also included the Red Flash's fifth trip to the Northeast Conference (NEC) tournament in seven years. SFU held its opponents to 0.64 goals-per-game and concluded the season ranked No. 8 in the nation in goals-against.
At SFU, Fread coached nine student-athletes who earned All-NEC recognition, four named to the NSCAA All-North Atlantic Region team, five named to the All-NEC Tournament Team and a freshman who earned recognition on the 2013 SoccerNews Second Team All-Freshman squad.
Outside of coaching collegiately, Fread is currently a staff coach for the Potomac Soccer Association. He works to develop and execute comprehensive team-focused training sessions to improve both individual and team technical and tactical abilities for the top teams in the club.
A 2009 graduate of Penn State University, Fread earned a bachelor's degree in psychology with a business concentration. He currently holds an Advance National Diploma and a National Diploma from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).
