    Gonzalez is entering his second season in Bloomington during the 2014 season, working primarily with the goalkeepers and defenders.

    In his first season with the Hoosiers, he helped the IU defense, anchored by goalkeeper Shannon Flower, register nine shutouts to set a new Indiana single-season record. Flower played every minute of every game in goal for Indiana, picking up all 15 wins in the process to set a new IU single-season record for goalkeepers. Flower finished her career in the top 10 in school history in goals against average, shutouts, saves and victories.

    Opponents managed less than 11 total shots per game against a stout Indiana defense that allowed a total of two goals in non-conference play on the way to a school record 8-0-1 start to the year.

    Gonzalez came to Bloomington after spending the previous two seasons as the head coach at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). The Highlanders, who have competed at the NCAA Division I level since 2007, had 20 players named to Great West Conference All-Academic team and the team received the NSCAA Team Academic Award. Also, three players were named all-conference by College Sports Madness and they set a school record for most shutouts in a season and highest RPI as well.

    Prior to his time at NJIT, Gonzalez spent five seasons at the University of Dayton and helped the Flyers to Atlantic 10 Conference titles in his final two seasons. The team also advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 2009 and 2010 and posted an overall record of 71-21-15 during his tenure. He coached or recruited three Atlantic 10 Defensive Players of the Year, two A-10 Offensive Players of the year, one A-10 Rookie of the Year and one A-10 Midfielder of the Year. In 2009, he helped Mandi Bäck garner UD's first-ever NSCAA First Team All-American honors and in 2010 saw Colleen Williams receive NSCAA Second-Team All-American accolades.

    He was also an assistant coach at Slippery Rock University from 2000-2006 and won a pair of conference titles there. The team also advanced to the Round of 16 in the NCAA Division II Tournament in 2001 and featured a NSCAA First Team All-American.

    His coaching experience also extends to the youth level, where he was involved with the Ohio South Youth Soccer Association as the Head ODP Goalkeeper coach as well as being part of the goalkeeping staff for the U.S. Youth Soccer Region II Girls ODP Program. His coaching experience also includes being a director for former United States Women's National Team, Olympic gold medal and World Cup-winning coach Tony DiCicco's Soccer Plus Goalkeeper Camp since 2001. He is also is a member of the NSCAA National Goalkeeping Academy and has his NSCAA Premier Diploma.

    While earning his Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice from Salve Regina University in Rhode Island, he was a four-year starter and three-time captain and holds all season and career goalkeeping records. Gonzalez went on to pick up a Master's Degree in Student Personnel from Slippery Rock University in 2003 while serving as an assistant coach.

    Gonzalez and his wife, Megan, live in Bloomington and have one son, Aiden.
