New England Revolution
Remi Roy is in his fifth season as the goalkeepers coach of the New England Revolution after joining the coaching staff in 2010. In addition to coaching the first-team keepers, Roy also manages the team’s collegiate scouting efforts and provides additional training for the Revolution Academy’s youth teams’ goalkeepers.
During his time with the Revolution, Roy has mentored the Revs’ goalkeepers as they’ve worked with an entirely new defensive structure and personnel each season. In addition to coaching former Rev Matt Reis in his pursuit of MLS longevity and success records, Roy has helped Bobby Shuttleworth develop into one of the league’s top young keepers.
In 2012, Shuttleworth held MLS’ best goals against average (0.71 GAA) among back-up keepers making three or more starts. In 2013, the Revs had one of MLS’ top goals against averages all season – finishing tied for third with a 1.12 mark – and Reis lead the league (0.72) with his best-ever single-season mark. Shuttleworth was also among the goalkeeping leaders much of the season – garnering mid-season All-Star consideration – before ceding to Reis in August.
Roy joined the Revolution after 10 years as the assistant coach/goalkeepers coach for both the men's and women's soccer teams at the University of Mobile (Ala.), his alma mater. During his tenure in Mobile, Roy was also a member of the Region III goalkeeping staff since 2003, and head coach for the Port City Futbol Club, where he also served as the academy's director. Additionally, Roy served as the Puerto Rico National Team's goalkeepers coach in its preparations for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
In addition to his various coaching positions, Roy simultaneously spent five years as a player-coach in the United Soccer League (USL) with the Syracuse Salty Dogs (2003) and the Virginia Beach Mariners (2004-07).
Roy played collegiately at the University of Mobile from 1997-99. In his final season in 1999, Roy garnered all-conference, all-region and All-America honors. Roy also played five seasons in the Premier Development League (PDL).
Roy holds a USSF "A" License and Level I and II NSCAA Goalkeeping Licenses. A native of Peter Rocher, New Brunswick, Canada, Roy lives south of Boston with his wife, Jessica, and newborn son, Zachary.
