Connor Tobin, a 2009
University of Vermont graduate, enters his third season as an
assistant coach with the University of New Hampshire men’s
Prior to UNH, Tobin played professionally with Nybergsund IL-Trysil in Adeccoligen, Norway. During his stint in Norway, Tobin played in 19 games, including 18 starts, playing a total of 1,801 minutes in both league and cup matches.
Prior to crossing the pond, Tobin was a standout back for the Catamounts from 2005-2008, finishing his career in UVM’s top-10 games played (77) list. As one of the nation’s top backs, he helped Vermont rank in the top 25 in the nation in team defense during his final three years in green and yellow. During that span, the defenseman was selected as the 2007 America East’s Men’s Soccer Scholar-Athlete and was named to the 2008 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America First Team.
As a senior he was named America East Defender of the Year, selected to conference’s All-Championship Team for the third straight year and was also a unanimous selection for the America East All-Conference First Team. Additionally, the mechanical engineering major was selected to the America East All-Academic Team for the third time in his four-year career.
As a junior, Tobin helped the Vermont defense record seven straight shutouts to close out the regular season and give the Catamounts the America East title. His stellar play helped him earn First Team All-Conference honors and a spot on the NSCAA All-Region Third Team.
During his sophomore year Tobin was just as productive, being named to the America East All-Conference Second Team and picking up conference All-Championship honors after playing in 16 contests and making 15 starts. As a freshman, Tobin showed early signs of greatness, earning a spot on the America East All-Rookie Team after starting in all 19 games for the Catamounts.
