With the primary goal of changing the programs culture to one of consistent excellence, Greg Miller begins his fifth year as the University of Pittsburghs head womens soccer coach.
Already after four seasons, Miller has the Pitt program moving in the right direction.
Last year, Miller guided the team to its first Atlantic Coast Conference wins – both road victories coming back-to-back on the strength of defensive shutouts.
Dr. Ted Flogaites
Dr. Ted Flogaites joins the Pitt womens soccer program with 15 years of head coaching experience at the collegiate level. Flogates comes to Pitt after serving as the head coach at Western Illinois, a program he led for four seasons. He has a career coaching record of 151-127-16. In his most recent stop with the Leatherbacks, he compiled a 28-42-3 record and a 13-17-1 record in the Summit League.
“I am so excited to add Ted to our staff. He brings a wealth of experience as a head coach at all college levels, and his knowledge of the game is exceptional,” said head coach Greg Miller. “Having another member of the staff who has been a head coach is a great resource for our players. He has a great balance of humor, passion and command within his personality that I feel our players will be drawn to immediately. He will be primarily in charge of our recruiting and has a well- trained eye for talent and look forward to how he can help deepen our talent pool.”,
His finest season in Macomb, Ill., came his first year with the program. The Leatherbacks posted a 13-6 record, including 5-3 in conference play to earn an invitation to the Summit League tournament. They eventually fell as the No. 4 seed to No. 1 Oakland, 1-0. That team broke school single season records in shots per game (9.47) and goals against average (0.63). The squad also tied records in shutouts (9) and goals (38).
After five seasons serving as a volunteer assistant coach, Anthony James has been promoted to assistant coach. Prior to accepting this role, James has gained familiarity with Pitt womens soccer in his five years with the program. The Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago native has a combined 22 years of womens soccer coaching experience, including 14 years at the collegiate level.
“Promoting Anthony from our volunteer position was a no-brainer,” said head coach Greg Miller. “Anthony has been loyal and dedicated to both me and our program since my start here, and I have relied on his knowledge and experience the last four years, albeit on a limited basis. The fact he is now full-time allows me to utilize him in a greater, more impactful capacity. The players and I really enjoy him already and are ecstatic he will be around all of the time now.”
James previously served as the head coach of Youngstown State (2004-08) and West Virginia Wesleyan (2000-04). In 2008, the Penguins experienced the most successful season at the Division I level so far, grabbing their first ever Horizon League playoff victory.
