In that role, he oversaw Navy's travel, facilities scheduling, camps and clinics, as well as other administrative duties including budget, compliance items and film. As an assistant coach from 2002-05, Goers molded the Mids into one of the most successful faceoff squads in the country. In 2004, Chris Pieczonka was ranked No. 2 nationally in faceoffs, winning 67.6 percent (173 of 256) of his draws and led Navy as a team to a tie for No. 2 in the national rankings, winning 65.5 percent (268 of 409).

A multi-faceted player, he saw time as a face-off specialist, a wing player on face-offs, a defensive midfielder and an offensive midfielder. Looney, the 2004 Patriot League Tournament MVP, surfaced with the ball in 2004 and `05 in nearly every ground ball opportunity.Goers came to the Naval Academy after a three-year stint at Ohio State where he oversaw the Buckeyes' offense and face-off strategy.
