BRISTOL, R.I. – After an illustrious career as men’s soccer head coach at Roger Williams University, Jim Cook will retire at the end of the 2014-15 academic year.
“After a tremendous career that positively affected hundreds of student-athletes, Coach Cook is retiring and leaving behind an incredible legacy,” said Dave Kemmy, director of Athletics, Intramurals, and Recreation. “We are very grateful for his tireless dedication to Roger Williams University athletics.”
Cook started at Roger Williams University in 1990, leading the team to the Commonwealth Coast Conference Championship in his second year. Spanning four seasons, he coached the Hawks and compiled a record of 39-36-4.
After a brief stint at UMass-Dartmouth, Cook returned to RWU in 1996 as the director of Intramurals and Recreation. A year later, the University offered him the men’s soccer head coaching position again, where Cook guided the Hawks to the CCC Championship game in his second season back.
