What graduates are saying “Looking back at the last five years here at the University of Maine, I can’t help but think about how much I have changed as an individual because of the amazing opportunities and lifelong lessons associated with being a studentathlete. Words cannot express how fortunate and privileged I feel to have been able to represent the University of Maine hockey team and wear its jersey out onto the ice. I will continue to hold close the great memories and extraordinary friendships for the rest of my life.”   — Mark Nemec Men’s Ice Hockey “My time here at the University of Maine has truly been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I came to this school never imagining the journey I would have as a student-athlete. Being a part of athletics and academics here at the university has made me who I am today. I will forever be grateful for all of the support I have received from the UMaine faculty, my coach Mark Lech, my family, and most importantly, my lovely teammates. Looking back on my time here I can say I have no regrets; I feel lucky to have been given the opportunity to represent UMaine and I will continue to do so in one way or another for the rest of my life.” — Corey Conner Women’s Track and Field and Cross Country “These past four years as a Black Bear student-athlete have been the best years of my life. The friendships and memories I have made with my teammates and classmates will be cherished forever. It has been an honor to play the sport I love, for the school I love for four amazing years. Once a Black Bear, always a Black Bear — GO BLUE.” — Michael Fransoso Baseball “When I started here four years ago, I could have never anticipated how much of a life-changing experience being a UMaine student-athlete would be. The biggest lesson I have learned from my time here is the value of hard work and dedication, and I have come to learn that those two words epitomize University of Maine athletics. I have had the opportunity to play amongst, meet, and be inspired by some incredible athletes and coaches, and the things I will take away from this place stretch far beyond the classroom. My fondest memories will always be those shared on and off the field with my teammates.” ­— Madelaine Hill Women’s Soccer

Dyer was also a member of the board of directors for the National Soccer Coaches’ Association of America.   “I am thrilled that Jim has decided to join our staff, and rejoin the Black Bear community,” said Atherley. “The fact that he will be around to share his knowledge, wisdom, and experiences with our players enriches their experience as members of our program, considerably. Jim has such a positive presence, and his perspective about life, school, and soccer will help our players realize their full potential as citizens, students, and players. Our relationship extends over three decades, and I can honestly say that there are very few people I trust and admire more than Jim.”   Dyer was elected into the University of Maine Sports Hall of Fame in 2010.
