COLUMBIA, S.C. – University of South Carolina head coach Mark Berson has announced the hiring of Alex Maslow as an assistant coach for the Gamecock men’s soccer program. Maslow, a standout goalkeeper for the last four seasons at Furman University, began his duties on June 6.

“I’m very pleased to announce the addition of Alex Maslow to our coaching staff,” Berson said. “He has been an outstanding goalkeeper and great competitor throughout his career, and he was a success both on the field and in the classroom. Alex will assume a wide range of responsibility in our program with a special emphasis on training our goalkeepers.”

Maslow was a four-year letterwinner from 2001-2004 for Furman coach Doug Allison, who played for and served as an assistant coach to Berson at South Carolina. He was a two-time All-Southern Conference selection and a two-time member of the league’s Academic Honor Roll. Maslow started 42 matches and compiled an impressive 0.99 goals-against average in 4,147 minutes of play during his career. He also finished with 16 shutouts and 212 saves.

In 2002, Maslow was the goalkeeper for eight of the 11 matches in Furman’s NCAA record shutout streak. He went 846 minutes from Oct. 2 to Dec. 1 without allowing a goal, which ranks as the fourth-longest streak in NCAA history. His 0.63 goals-against average that season ranked eighth nationally.

A native of Charlotte, N.C., Maslow was a National Soccer Coaches’ Association of America High School All-American at Charlotte Catholic High School. During his prep years, he was a member of the United States U-18 National Team pool.

“This is a great opportunity to begin my coaching career at South Carolina,” Maslow said. “I’m excited by the chance to work with two experienced coaches like Mark Berson and Bert Molinary in such a highly-recognized program like South Carolina’s.”

Maslow recently graduated from Furman with a bachelor’s degree in political science.

Molinary was promoted to the top assistant spot last month. Maslow’s hiring completes the Gamecock staff.
