New England Revolution
Remi Roy enters his eighth season with the New England Revolution as an assistant coach, having joined the coaching staff in 2010. In addition to working primarily with the first-team keepers, Roy also manages the club's collegiate scouting efforts and provides additional training for the Revolution Academy's goalkeepers.
During his time with the Revolution, Roy has mentored several different goalkeepers and helped them each achieve success in MLS. In addition to coaching former Revs goalkeeper Matt Reis in his pursuit of MLS longevity and success, Roy helped Bobby Shuttleworth establish himself as one of the league's premier goalkeepers since his debut in 2010. In 2016, Roy's guidance helped Brad Knighton start a career-high 13 matches, including six wins.
Under his direction, young goalkeepers have thrived with the Revolution. In addition to helping Shuttleworth adjust to the professional stage, Roy tutored rookie Matt Turner through seven starts in USL action in 2016, a stretch in which he conceded only three goals. He also worked with MLS newcomer Cody Cropper after he was acquired during the 2016 campaign, leading to a shutout victory in his MLS debut in the season finale.
Roy's supervision helped Shuttleworth emerge onto the MLS scene in 2012, as the then-fourth year pro posted the league's best goals against average (0.71 GAA) among keepers making three or more starts. In 2013, the Revs had one of MLS's top goals against averages all season, finishing tied for third with a 1.12 mark, while Reis led the league with a career-best mark (0.72). The 2013 season also saw Shuttleworth named among the top goalkeepers in MLS, as he garnered mid-season All-Star consideration.
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 in Alabama, his alma mater.
During his tenure in Mobile, Roy was also a member of the Region III goalkeeping staff. Additionally, he 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 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-American honors. He also played five seasons in the Premier Development League (PDL) with the Jackson Chargers (1998-99), Des Moines Menace (2000), and the Spokane Shadow (2001).
Roy holds a USSF "A" License and Level I and II NSCAA Goalkeeping Licenses. A native of Petit-Rocher, New Brunswick, Canada, Roy lives south of Boston with his wife and three kids.
