LOWELL -- Bryan Scales, a native of Medway, was named the head coach of the UMass Lowell men's soccer program, Director of Athletics Dana Skinner announced yesterday.

Scales replaces former coach Ted Priestly, who accepted the head post at the College of the Holy Cross in February, ending a splendid 12-year reign that included a 131-76-28 record.

Scales comes to UMass Lowell following 11 years as the head coach at Cornell University (1998-2008), preceded by four years as an assistant with the Big Red (1994-98) and two years as an assistant at Harvard (1992-94). He played at Hartwick College.

Scales was recently named a scout for the U.S. Men's National Team and an assistant coach with the U-15 boys national team, which he will accompany on a two-week trip to Moenchengladbach, Germany this summer.

"What attracted me to UMass Lowell was the success of the program and the broad range of academic offerings at the University," Scales said.
