Josh Green | Assistant Coach

Josh Green is in his seventh season as South Dakota’s assistant women’s soccer coach. He joined his wife, Mandy, at the helm of the program in March of 2010.

The Coyotes are coming off their first Summit League Tournament appearance in program history after recording a program-best 5-3 Summit League record in 2015. South Dakota had three players earn Summit League awards at the end of the season, two players make the all-tournament team and two named to the academic all-Summit League team. Senior Elena Tsakakis also became the second Academic All-American in program history.

A year prior, South Dakota boasted a 9-8-2 record, the first winning record at the Division I level and the sixth-best record in program history. The Coyotes ended the season ranked 15th in the NCAA for assists per game (2.21), 20th for points per game (6.63), 23rd for scoring offense (2.21) and 40th for total goals (42).

Notable athletes Green has helped coach include goalkeeper Mackenzie Viktor, who ranks second in program history for wins and shutouts, and striker Corey Strang, who ranks fifth for game-winning goals and seventh for total points.

Green has coached an Academic All-American in Tsakakis, five all-Summit League honorees (Jenny Teslow, Viktor, two-time honoree in Strang, and Kasha Meyer) and seven academic all-Summit League team members (Erin Bello, two-time honoree in Viktor, two-time honoree in Meyer and two-time honoree in Tskakis).

Prior to South Dakota, Green made stops as an assistant coach at Xavier (2009), Loyola Marymount in California (2008-09), Minnesota State-Mankato (2006-08), Iowa (2004-06), and Pepperdine (1996-2003).

As a graduate assistant at Mankato, Green helped the MSU program become a Division II national power. The Mavericks had a 26-9-3 record, boasting three All-Central Region players and eight All-North Central Conference players.

Green also helped build Pepperdine into a Top 25 team. Pepperdine made three appearances in the NCAA tournament from 1996 to 2003.

Green is a 1994 graduate of California Lutheran University, where he earned a bachelor's degree in physical education. He completed his master's degree in sports psychology from Minnesota State, Mankato in 2008.
