DENVER, COLO. - Clint Corzatt and Jeremy Aldrich have been named assistant men's soccer coaches at Metro State, head coach Ken Parsons announced Tuesday.
"We are extremely fortunate to gain the services of Clint and Jeremy," said Parsons. "Clint's energies will be divided between the training of goalkeepers and assisting with the day to day operations. Jeremy adds a wealth of knowledge as a result of his play at the highest levels of college, professional and national teams. I look forward to the contributions both will make."
Corzatt, who will work primarily with the goalkeepers, begins his second stint with the Roadrunners after spending the 2004 and 2005 seasons at Drury University as a graduate assistant coach. The Panthers posted a 7-10-2 overall record, including a 4-7-2 mark in the Great Lakes Valley Conference in 2005.
Prior to his time at Drury, Corzatt spent the 2003 season at Metro State as an assistant coach in charge of the goalkeepers.
Corzatt also has coached several club teams in and around Fort Collins, as well serving as the goalkeeper training coach at the Fort Collins Goalkeeper Academy from 1996-2003 and as an assistant coach at Fort Collins High School in 2000. He also coached the Under-15 Elite girl's team in Evansville, Ind., from 1995-96.
As a player, Corzatt played three seasons at the University of Evansville. After his playing career, he came to Colorado and earned his bachelor's degree in sociology from Colorado State in 1996. Corzatt holds a USSF national "B" license.
Aldrich comes to Metro State after a six-year professional soccer career, most recently for the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer and the Philadelphia Kixx of Major Indoor Soccer League. He was a member of the Rookie All-Star team while with Philadelphia in 2004. In addition, he also played in the United Soccer League with the Virginia Beach Mariners, Milwaukee Rampage and Indiana Blast from 2001-04. Aldrich was the 19th pick of the 1999 Major League Soccer draft by the Miami Fusion.
As a coach, Aldrich spent the 2002 season with the Sussex Soccer Club in Milwaukee, Wisc., as the Director of Soccer, and also served as an assistant coach for Butler University in 2001.
As a player, Aldrich was a four-year letterwinner at Butler University, including an NSCAA/adidas all-American as a 1998 senior. A team captain, Aldrich also earned Midwestern Collegiate Conference Player of the Year accolades and was Butler's team Most Valuable Player following his senior season. While at Butler, he was a four-time all-Midwestern Collegiate Conference selection. During his collegiate career, Aldrich spent the 1996-97 season on the United States Under-20 national team.
