Former Western Michigan coach brings experience, success to program

On Monday, Suzie Grech officially joined the UH soccer program as an assistant coach, said first-year head coach Chris Pfau in an announcement.

Under Grech, the Western Michigan Broncos improved in total wins every year, tying the school record for most overall and most conference wins with a 14-8 (8-3 MAC) in 2011.

Grech served as an assistant coach at Western Michigan beginning in 2008 before being promoted to interim head coach in December 2009 and full-time head coach in 2010.

Prior to Western Michigan, Grech spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Marshall and one year coaching high school soccer.

Grech began her collegiate playing career at the University of Michigan where, as a standout goalkeeper, she helped her squad to four NCAA appearances.

Following her graduation from Michigan in 2005 with her bachelor’s degree in physical education, she received her master’s degree in sports administration from Marshall in 2006.
