DEAN'S STORY

Originally from High Wycombe, England, Dean now plies his trade on the East Coast of the United States.

Dean's soccer journey began at the age of 10 when he was picked up by Wycombe Wanderer's Centre of Excellence where he trained and played for the majority of his youth career.

After making his way across the Atlantic to Mercyhurst University in Erie, PA. Dean attained his Bachelor's degree in Accounting and Master's degree in Applied Intelligence whilst initially playing, and later coaching, for the Lakers.

Having begun coaching with Wycombe Wanderer's Football in the Community Scheme and Development Centers, Dean saw his future in the beautiful game and proceeded to pick up coaching licenses whilst learning the ropes with the Western New York Flash, the New York Red Bulls and most recently, Atlanta United FC.

Dean is currently Coach Education and Development Manager, focusing on the development of youth soccer in the south with Atlanta United.

Also an assistant coach within the academy, Dean helps train and prepare players for the next step in the Atlanta United development pathway. 

In addition to his coaching responsibilities, Dean has a great interest in professional development and has a number of projects on the go to improve player development, access to learning tools and his own growth as a professional coach.
