John Mark Andrade is in his eighth season coaching at Providence College. Andrade spent his first four seasons as an assistant coach and was promoted to the position of Associate Head Coach on Dec. 12, 2012. Prior to coaching under Head Coach Craig Stewart, Andrade spent the previous three seasons as an assistant coach for Chaka Daley.
During the 2014 season, Andrade assisted the Friars to their most successful season in program history. Andrade helped the team win its first BIG EAST Championship title in program history, as well as appear in the NCAA College Cup for the first time. Additionally, the team had a program record 16 wins. On March 22, 2015, Andrade was inducted into the Soccer Rhode Island Hall of Fame.
In 2013, Andrade helped coach the Friars to the BIG EAST Championship final for the third time in program history. Providence also earned a berth to the NCAA Tournament, where Andrade helped the team advance past the first round by defeating the University of Pennsylvania in a penalty shootout.
All-in-all, Andrade has helped the Friars reach the NCAA Tournament in four of his previous six seasons with the Friars. Prior to the 2013 and 2014 NCAA appearances, Andrade assisted the Friars under then head coach Daley to host a first round NCAA match in 2009 and 2010 and the Friars advanced to the second round each year.
Andrade, who served as the head coach at Dean College for one year, came to Providence with a wealth of soccer experience. In 2008, he guided the Bulldogs to a 10-5 record and the Region XXI Regular Season Championship. Andrade also served as a professor in the Sports Management program at Dean.
Andrade, who was the 1997 Gatorade & Umbro Rhode Island Player of the Year, has been the president of Bayside F.C. in East Providence since 2006 and has served as the head coach of the Rhode Island Olympic Developmental Program since 2005.
Andrade, a two-year All-State performer and a 1997 NSCAA All-American at East Providence High School, was a four-year starter at Syracuse University. He earned All-BIG EAST accolades in 2000 and 2001 and All-Northeast Region honors in those same years. In addition, he served as team captain in 2001 and was named team MVP in 2000-01. Andrade graduated from Syracuse with a degree in Consumer Studies in 2002 and then moved to Portugal where he played professionally in the first division for Maritimo F.C. and the third division for Fafe F.C.
Andrade currently resides in East Providence with his wife, Jenny, and sons, Markos and Niko.
