Falloon Rounds Out Miami Soccer Coaching Staff

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami soccer program announced Tuesday the addition of Peter-John Falloon as assistant coach. Falloon arrives in Coral Gables after nearly two decades of coaching experience, while also serving as a United States Soccer scout.

“I’m humbled and deeply appreciative as I start a new chapter in my coaching career as an assistant coach at the University of Miami,” Falloon said. “I consider it a privilege to be working for such a historic and renowned institution and I want to acknowledge and give my warmest thanks to head coach Ken Masuhr for the opportunity to join his staff. I’m looking forward to working with the elite student-athletes at Miami in the number one collegiate soccer conference in the country. Go Canes!”

Most recently, Falloon logged a 57-40-20 overall record as head coach at Kean University in Union, N.J., guiding the Cougars to the 2021 New Jersey Athletic Conference championship, its first since 2010. In his seven years at Kean, Falloon helped produce an All-American, two conference Rookies of the Year, a Goalkeeper of the Year, one Defensive Player of the Year, four all-region performances and 22 all-conference honorees. This past year Kean went 11-2-6 as he rounded out his seventh tenure with the Cougars.

Falloon also spent nearly a decade as the head coach at Bloomfield (NJ) College, helping BC to a Central Atlantic Conference regular season league title while earning league coach of the year honors during an unbeaten campaign. The 2015 season saw the Bears claim the program’s only conference tournament title. Falloon would help produce the 2010 and 2011 conference Player of the Year, along with one All-American, seven all-region players and 21 all-conference selections.

“We’re excited to bring Peter-John to Miami and we believe he is the perfect addition to round out our coaching staff,” Masuhr said. “He comes to us with a wealth of knowledge as a head coach and as a talent scout within the United States Soccer system. He has experience with international football, both in coaching and recruiting, and I look forward to his insight as we get underway. I am thrilled to bring him and his family on to our staff as we continue to elevate and grow the Miami soccer program.”

Having an eye for talent, Falloon also served as a US Soccer Youth National Team scout. His coaching career in New Jersey also took him to the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), United Soccer League (USL) and junior college level. A native of Saint Andrew, Jamaica, Falloon would go on to collect four years of playing experience at the collegiate level before earning his bachelor’s degree from Kean.
