Brian Neumeyer has been named the new boys soccer coach at Fairfield Prep, the school’s website announced on Friday.
Neumeyer replaces Ryan Lyddy, who resigned in February after 10 seasons at his alma mater.
Neumeyer coached the Newtown boys from 1997-2016. The Nighthawks won the Class LL state championship in 2004, and reached the LL final in 2002 and the L final in 1998. Newtown also won three South-West Conference championships (2002, 2002 and 2004) under Neumeyer’s direction.
