The Orange Card Bonus Episode: Coach Phil Wheddon

SU's women's coach talks about his experience both in and out of Syracuse soccer.

Phil Wheddon has been the head coach of the Syracuse Women's Soccer team for 10 years. Before joining the Orange, Wheddon had stints as the goalkeeper coach for both the US Men and Women's national teams.

The Orange were set to begin their conference games this week but, due to Hurricane Irma devastating Florida, the game against Miami has been postponed until further notice. That means that Wheddon's team will begin their ACC fixtures with three games against teams in the top 20 nationwide.

Wheddon thinks he has a good group of players this year though. Despite going 1-7-2 last season in the ACC, the new system and 10 new faces in the team mean that it is hard to predict how the Orange will fair this season.
