"I am very excited to have Coach Andrade and Coach DeMello working alongside me moving forward," Stewart said. "They both have great playing and coaching pedigree and have been instrumental in the success of the men's soccer program over recent years."
Andrade has spent the last three seasons at Providence College and has helped the Friars to consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament. Andrade, who was initially hired by former Friar Head Coach Chaka Daley, served as the head coach at Dean College for one year before coming to Providence. 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 son, Markos.
DeMello has served as an assistant coach at Providence for the last 12 seasons and has helped the Friars to five NCAA Tournament appearances and seven consecutive winning seasons under Daley.
A 1994 graduate of the University of Rhode Island, DeMello played four years for the Rams' soccer team. During his junior season, he earned Atlantic-10 All-Conference honors as a back and helped the team reach the conference finals. After graduating from URI in 1994, DeMello played professionally for the Rhode Island Stingrays of the USL and served as the team captain for four seasons.
DeMello began coaching in 1994 as an assistant at UMass-Dartmouth. He spent three seasons with the Corsairs before becoming an assistant coach at Roger Williams University. DeMello worked for four seasons at Roger Williams.
A 1989 graduate of Bristol High School, DeMello earned All-State honors in his junior and senior years.
DeMello and his wife, Vicki, and their daughters, Taylor and Maya, live in Bristol, R.I.
