Along with being voted the 2018 MIAC Co-Coach of the Year, Flintham also had the Gusties ranked No. 1 in the North region, the only MIAC team to be ranked by the NCAA at that spot, and received a national top 25 nomination. For their efforts, the Gusties received a conference-high seven MIAC postseason awards, two MIAC Player of the Week honors, and a CoSIDA Academic All-District award (Luke Laurich).

Last season the men went 11-7-1 overall and won their first playoff game in 20 years. The NWU men also finished undefeated at home and went 10-0-1 in his last 11 games in Lincoln. Flintham oversaw two-thirds of NWU’s overall playoff appearances, and prior to Flintham’s arrival the program had not made post season play for 16 seasons.  In the past three years, Flintham has developed one professional player, two CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, 18 All-IIAC, and six All-GPAC players.

Prior to his time at Nebraska Wesleyan, Flintham was the associate head soccer coach at Saint John’s University from 2010-14. He also served as an assistant at the College of Saint Benedict from 2012-14. In his last two seasons at CSB/SJU he coached 52 wins, two MIAC titles, three MIAC championship games, and travelled to the NCAA tournament.

From 2008-10, Flintham was head coach at both Valley Catholic High School in Beaverton, Ore. and the F.C. Portland Soccer Academy in Hillsboro, Ore. At Valley Catholic, he achieved a 29-4-4 record, the 2018 State Coach of the Year award, back-to-back District 1 Coach of the Year awards, and was a finalist for NCSAA National Coach of the Year.

Flintham earned his bachelor’s degree from Saint John’s in 2006. He was a three-year starting forward for the Johnnies, playing in 65 games from 2002-05 with 21 goals and 19 assists for 61 points. Flintham was an All-Region selection while earning MIAC All-Conference and Academic All-Conference in 2005. His senior year, Flintham captained the team to the conference playoff championship and finished the regular season as the MIAC statistical leader for both goals and assists.

In 2013, Flintham received a master’s degree in sports management from St. Cloud State University. He holds a F.A. Level One Coaching License, National Exercise Trainers Association Certification, and a USSF National C Coaching License.
