Amber Verrill returns to the Simmons sideline for her second year after spending four seasons with the Sharks as a player.
Verrill gained valuable coaching experience in 2018 during her first year with Head Coach Erica Schuling taking a brief leave of absence on maternity leave.
The Maine native was one of the most cerebral players on the field for Simmons in her four years as a goalkeeper and was named to the Great Northeast Athletic Conference All-Academic Team all three years that she was eligible for the honor.
Verrill enjoyed great success with the Sharks, posting a 1.22 goals against average in over 800 minutes of action, while owning a 5-1-0 record, including a pair of shutouts. She helped Simmons soccer compile a 29-16-0 mark in conference play and earn four straight GNAC Championship Tournament playoff appearances, including a date in the title match in 2012.
The former Shark has gained coaching experience in various capacities over the past few years, including a stint coaching youth soccer in Windham, Maine for U-8 Boys, volunteer coaching for seven years with the Special Olympics in Southern Maine and under Simmons Head Coach Erica Schuling at the Sharks Summer Sports Clinic in 2013. In addition, Verrill has enriched her experience with an internship with the Strength and Conditioning coaches at Northeastern University.
The former netminder graduated from the Simmons in 2016 with a degree in Exercise Science.
