Biggs has been instrumental to the success of the Brown men’s soccer team since joining the staff, helping the Bears to three 12-win seasons, including the 2011 Ivy League title. A perennial postseason qualifier, Brown reached the NCAA Sweet Sixteen in both 2010 and 2011 and the second round in 2012. The Bears were just one of nine programs ranked in the top 20 at the end of each of those three seasons, finishing with a No. 10 national ranking in the 2010 final poll, followed by No. 17 in 2011 and No. 16 in 2012. Additionally, Brown has racked up wins over 12 nationally ranked top-25 teams over the last four seasons.
Biggs has worked closely with the highly touted Bears defense, helping a backline that registered a school-record 11 shutouts in three consecutive seasons (2010-12). Individually, Biggs has coached 29 All-Ivy players, including three Major League Soccer SuperDraft picks, four professional players, two CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, one NSCAA All-American and the first Senior CLASS Award winner in school history (2012).
During his time at New England, Biggs coached the program's first winning season in 10 years along with its first 10-win season since 1997. He took over a program that averaged less than three wins per season since the year 2000, and under his guidance the Nor'easters made two Commonwealth Coast Conference Championship appearances.
In addition to coaching, Biggs was also the Director of Coaching and Player Development for the Maine State Youth Soccer Association and was named the National Soccer Coaches Association America Youth Boys' National Coach of the Year in 1999. He has also served as a US Soccer National Staff Instructor, and has his USSF "A" license. Biggs was also a founder of Odyssey Sport 97 youth soccer club in 1997 and served as the club's Technical Director.
Biggs began his collegiate career at the University of Pennsylvania, and went on to Middlebury College where he was a New England Intercollegiate Soccer League All-Star and received his Bachelor of Arts in History. After college he played professionally in New Zealand with Western Suburbs, and then competed for the Arizona Cotton in the United States Interregional Soccer League.
