Roy Dunshee was named the 11th head coach in Washington College men's soccer history in April 2012.

In Dunshee's first season as the Shoremen's head coach, he guided them to their best overall record since 2007 and best conference record since 2008. In his second season, the Shoremen went 8-8-1, their best mark since 2003. Dunshee's fourth season - 2015 - saw the Shoremen post four straight shutout wins to open the season and finish with a 9-8 record, their best in 12 years. Year five of the Dunshee era was a breakthrough as the Shoremen qualified for the Centennial Conference Tournament for the first time, winning the first-round game, and posted a 10-7-2 record, their best in 16 years.

Dunshee's diverse soccer background includes time as a successful high school coach, positions with the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), and 16 years operating a soccer skills teaching company.

Prior to coming to Washington College, Dunshee spent four seasons as the head boys' soccer coach at Severna Park High School in Severna Park, Md. In his four seasons, he led the team to a record of 56-10-4 and three regional championships. He stepped down from the position to accept a one-year position as an assistant coach at Division III power Amherst College for the 2012-13 academic year before the head coaching position at Washington College became available.

He also spent five years coaching at St. Mary's Catholic High School in Annapolis, Md.

Dunshee has also worked for the NSCAA since 2007 as the State Technical Coordinator for Maryland and as a National Academy Instructor. In that position, he teaches high-level residential coaching courses around the country. He has been chosen as a clinician at the annual NSCAA Convention five times and was named the NSCAA's Associate Staff Coach of the Year in 2011. Since 2008, Dunshee has served as a state staff coach for the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association, teaching United States Soccer Federation (USSF) E and D license courses.

For nearly 20 years Dunshee has been affiliated with Coerver Coaching, a company which provides team training, camps, clinics, and coaches' education.

During the winter and spring of 2010, Dunshee also served as an interim assistant men's soccer coach at Division I Northwestern University, designing and implementing winter and spring training sessions and game plans. Northwestern went on to win the 2011 Big Ten Championship.

Dunshee played collegiate soccer at the University of South Carolina, earning a B.A. in Journalism from the school in 1983. He went on to earn a Juris Doctorate from George Mason University School of Law in 1989. His additional professional experience includes five years as a law clerk and attorney and 13 years as a restauranteur.
