Paul Nagy
Position: Assistant Coach
Alma Mater: St. Louis University, 2002
Experience: 1 Year

Paul Nagy enters his second year with the Wildcats as an assistant coach under head coach Tony Amato. He came to the Wildcats after spending three seasons on Amato’s staff at Stephen F. Austin University (SFA).

In his first season at Arizona, Nagy helped coach the Wildcats to a 9-7-4 record, making it the first winning record the program has seen since 2005. The 3-0-3 start for the Wildcats was the best since 1994, the program’s inaugural year.

Specializing in goalkeeping, Nagy helped coach junior keeper Gabby Kaufman to lead the Pac-12 in saves for three-straight weeks during the season. Kaufman also concluded the season leading the conference in saves with 105 and a save percentage of .820 while averaging 5.25 saves per match.

In 2012, SFA posted a 17-4-0 overall record while winning all eight of its Southland Conference (SLC) games and a perfect 7-0-0 at home. The squad advanced to the NCAA Tournament. In 2011, Nagy was part of the Ladyjacks' coaching staff that led the squad to a 15-3-1 overall record, a 9-0 league record and the SLC regular-season title.

Nagy oversaw the defense and goalkeepers, who proved not only to be the best in the SLC but also one of the best in the country. The Ladyjacks' defense posted a goals against average of just .416, the fifth-best mark in the nation.

Nagy joined the SFA staff following a two-year stint as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for the men's soccer program at Rollins College in Winter Park, Fla. During his time at Rollins, Nagy helped lead the Tars to a 24-13-1 record. Rollins won the Sunshine State Conference (SSC) Championship in 2009 and earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Prior to his stop at Rollins, Nagy was an assistant at the University of Central Florida for three seasons (2005-07). At UCF, he coached goalkeepers for two seasons before earning a promotion to the top assistant's spot and adding recruiting coordinator to his title.

The former goalkeeper served as a volunteer goalkeepers coach at TCU, Saint Louis University and LeMoyne College before accepting his position with UCF.

As a player, Nagy played professionally for the Dallas Burn (MLS), Syracuse Salty Dogs (A-League), Hershey Wildcats (A-League) and Orlando Sharks (MISL).

He was a four-year letterman on the Saint Louis University men's soccer team from 1997-2000, earning first-team All-Conference USA and all-region honors in 1999. He also played for the Billiken team that reached the NCAA Division I Final Four in 1997 while also winning four Conference USA titles in four years.

Nagy is a native of Grapevine, Texas. He earned a bachelor's degree in studio art with an emphasis on graphic design from Saint Louis, graduating with honors in 2002. He is the director of coaching for Nagy Goalkeeping School and Camps.
