UConn soccer coach Ray Reid taking leave due to family matter

UConn men’s soccer coach Ray Reid has announced he will take an indefinite leave of absence from the program due to a personal family matter.

Associate head coach Mike Miller will serve as interim head coach during Reid’s absence.

“Our thoughts are with Ray and his family, and we look forward to Ray returning to the sidelines as soon as he is ready,” director of athletics David Benedict said.

Reid has led the UConn men’s soccer program since 1997 and has amassed a record of 305-126-61 in his 24th season at the helm.

Under Reid, the program has made 18 NCAA Tournament appearances, winning the NCAA Division I title in 2000.

Prior to his time at UConn, Reid coached Southern Connecticut for eight years, leading the Owls to the Division II title in 1990, 1993 and 1995.
