Tod Herskovitz has been named an assistant coach of the Milwaukee Panthers for the 2012 season.
Herskovitz had been serving as the head coach of the Minnesota Thunder Academy and had been a member of the MTA staff since its inception. He brings a wealth of experience to the staff, both on the coaching and playing levels. He served as an assistant coach for the Minnesota Thunder for more than two years and was involved with youth clubs as a coach with the St. Paul Blackhawks and MTA.
"Todd has played and coached at the professional level," head coach Kris Kelderman said. "He also has the experience of playing at Maryland. So not only has he played and coached at the professional level, but he has played collegiately at the highest level as well."
As a player, he spent time with the Milwaukee Rampage and the Minnesota Thunder as a professional. That followed a decorated collegiate playing career, playing his final two seasons at the University of Maryland where he was a two-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference and a Herman Trophy finalist as a senior. He spent his first two seasons of college soccer at the University of Hartford, earning a pair of All-New England team selections.
