Joining the staff in 2014, Shane Carew enters his second season as an assistant coach for the San José State men's soccer program in 2015.
Carew spent the 2013 season as an assistant coach at Elon University and helped guide the Phoenix to one of its most successful seasons. The side defeated two top-10 ranked teams, No. 9 Wake Forest and No. 6 Coastal Carolina, and reached the second round of the NCAA Championship. To cap the campaign, midfielder Daniel Lovitz became the program's highest drafted player ever in the Major League Soccer SuperDraft when he was tabbed the 24th overall selection by Toronto FC.

In that capacity, Carew oversaw all FCCA Soccer Programs including FCCA Tournaments, Classic, Challenge, Academy Munchkin, Pre-Academy and Goalkeeping. He holds a USSF "A" soccer coaching license and is studying for a UEFA "B" license.
Carew also played professionally in his native Ireland with Shelbourne FC (98-00) and Kilkenny City (2004) and also with the Long Island Rough Riders (2003).
