Head Coach Andrius Zeikus

Andrius Zeikus, who has served as Assistant Men’s Soccer Coach at Suffolk in 2007 and 2008, enters his first season as Head Men's Soccer Coach.

A resident of Somerville, Mass., Zeikus has helped guide Suffolk to 19 victories since 2006, including back-to-back berths in the Great Northeast Athletic Conference semi-finals as well as the program’s first-ever ECAC post-season appearance in 2006.  Zeikus has helped coach four all-GNAC performers over that time period and takes over for Nick Papadopoulos, who led the Rams to 61 victories during his seven year tenure.

A 2004 graduate of Husson College, Zeikus earned a Master’s degree from Suffolk in 2006 and is a candidate for a Doctorate in Education from Boston University.  He has previous coaching experience at both Boston English High School and the Boston Latin School and works full-time as a personal trainer at Vim Fitness in Cambridge, Mass.

Recruiting Coordinator Nick Papadopoulos

Nick Papadopoulos, who served for the seven years as Head Men’s Soccer Coach at Suffolk University, has been cast in a new role as Advisor and Recruiting Coordinator. 

A successful figure in the collegiate soccer ranks for two decades, Papadopoulos posted 61 victories during his seven-year tenure as Suffolk’s mentor, including back-to-back appearances in the Great Northeast Athletic Conference semi-finals in each of the last two seasons and the school’s first-ever ECAC Division III tournament berth in 2006.  Papadopoulos guided the Rams to 11 victories in 2004 and reached double-digits in the win column once again with 10 triumphs during the 2006 campaign, and in 2008, he helped Suffolk record nine victories, including a 2-0 win over Albertus Magnus in the Great Northeast quarterfinals.
