Adrian Dubois, moved to Maine in August of 2014 when he was named head coach at Saint Joseph's College. Before moving to Maine  Adrian served as an assistant for the University of Massachusetts-Boston during the 2013-14 academic year.

He has also worked with the New England Football Club in Boston and The Catalyst Training Center in San Diego and, in 2012, earned an internship opportunity with the Newcastle United Football Club.
Dubois certainly brings a wealth of high-level playing experience to the position. A native of Acworth, New Hampshire, he played collegiately as a four-year starting midfielder at University of New Hampshire after earning collecting New Hampshire High School All-America and Gatorade Player of the Year accolades following his senior season at Fall Mountain Regional High School.

In 2016, Coach Dubois led the Monks to what was arguably the finest season in the 27-year history of the Saint Joseph's men's soccer program. In just his third season – and just two years removed from a 5-15 campaign – Dubois guided the Royal Blue to the top seed in the GNAC Tournament, a GNAC Championship, an NCAA Tournament berth, and the first NCAA tournament victory in team history.
