Tigerville, SC – The North Greenville University women’s soccer program has a new face at the helm as Athletic Director Jan McDonald has announced that Andy Robinson will take over the program in the fall.
Robinson, who most recently served as head coach of the women’s soccer team at nearby Eastside High School in Taylors, SC, returns to North Greenville where he was the men’s and women’s soccer coach from 2001-2002.
“I am excited to be back at North Greenville and to be a part of all the exciting things that God is doing through this university,” said Robinson. “I look forward to working with this year’s team and continuing the recent success of the program.”
In charge of the Lady Eagle program since 2003, Robinson spent 12 seasons as head coach of the Lady Eagles, with an overall record of 221-71, which is one of the top winning percentages in the State of South Carolina.
Robinson made six State Championship appearances, winning titles in 2003 and 2007 and finishing as a runner up in 2005, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
