|Position:||Associate Head Coach|
Nate Daligcon, an All-American player and top area club soccer coach, was hired as an assistant coach with the Redhawk men's soccer program prior to the 2013 season. In July 2014, Daligcon was promoted to the title of Associate Head Coach.
The 2018 season saw SU continue its string of success, as the Redhawks won 13 games. They are one of just four Division I programs to win at least 11 games in each of the last six seasons. For a third straight year, Seattle U saw at least one of its players get drafted, as seniors Sergio Rivas and Nathan Aune were both selected by San Jose in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft.
In 2017, the Redhawks won their third WAC Championship in the last five years and won an NCAA Tournament match for third time since 2013. Daligcon was key in SU winning 15 games, marking its fifth consecutive season with at least 11 wins. The Redhawks are one of just three Division I programs to win 11 or more games in each of the last five years.
Daligcon has played a large role in the Redhawks' surge of recent success, including a Sweet Sixteen appearance, a pair of NCAA Tournament showings, and a WAC Championship. In 2016, Seattle U went 7-0 at Championship Field, extending its home win streak to 16 games-the longest active streak in Division I entering the 2017 season.
With Daligcon's leadership, the Redhawks improved their win total by eight in 2013, going undefeated in conference play, and winning the conference regular season and tournament titles. The Redhawks also made the program's first ever appearance in the NCAA Division I tournament, defeating Creighton, 2-1, in the First Round.
Daligcon has been a head coach for several local club teams since 2004, most recently serving as head coach of Seattle United B01 Copa and G95 Copa. He led Emerald City FC G93 A to the 2005 Washington State Cup championship, plus guided two other squads to the state cup finals. He has also served as an assistant men's soccer coach at Seattle Pacific since 2009.
Daligcon was a two-time All-American at Seattle Pacific, helping the Falcons win the 1993 Division II national championship and advance to three national semifinal games as a center midfielder. He played in the A-League from 1996 through 2002, winning four league titles (three with the Rochester Rhinos, one with the Seattle Sounders), as well as the 1999 U.S. Open Cup championship as a member of the Rochester Rhinos.
Daligcon received his Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration with a marketing concentration from Seattle Pacific University, plus he holds a USSF "A" coaching license.
