GREG SHEEN | HEAD COACH
Greg Sheen was announced as the second head coach in program history on April 27, 2015, and the former Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) Coach of the Year is in his third season at UTSA after serving as the interim head coach a season ago following a stint as an assistant coach in 2013.
Last season as interim head coach, Sheen led the Roadrunners to a 6-10-2 record, which was an improvement from the team’s 2013 mark. UTSA also saw an improved offensive attack that featured an increase in goals, shots, shots-on-goal percentage, assists and corner kicks. Under Sheen’s tutelage, Anissa Munson set the program’s single-season assists record with eight, including a school-record-tying three assists in a win at Texas State.
Following the season, Munson was named to the Conference USA All-Academic Team, which was the first of many academic awards for the program. A total of 16 student-athletes were named to the C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll (3.0 GPA or better), while seven players received the league’s Academic Medal (3.75 GPA or better). The squad’s seven academic medals were the most by any UTSA sport. In addition, the team earned the Outstanding Mentoring Program award from the San Antonio Mentoring Forum.
As an assistant in 2013, he helped the Roadrunners establish a home field advantage in their first season as a member of Conference USA. Under Sheen’s tutelage, the UTSA defense shut out all five of its league opponents at the new Park West Athletics Complex and the team had just a 0.80 goals-against average versus C-USA foes. Goalie Emma Makela earned second-team All-Conference USA and All-Freshman Team honors after recording 90 saves.
Sheen came to UTSA in 2013 after serving the previous three seasons as the associate head coach and recruiting coordinator at Wright State. He helped lead the Raiders to 30 wins and a pair of appearances in the Horizon League Tournament Championship game (2011-12) during his three campaigns. Before his time at Wright State, Sheen was the head coach at Morehead State in 2004 and guided the squad to a 9-9-1 record, which marked the sixth most-improved Division I ledger in the country, and earned OVC Coach of the Year honors.
In addition to his time at Morehead State, the Arlington native also has served as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Dayton (1999-2003), Texas (2005-06) and Miami (Fla.) (2008-09). He helped guide these squads to a total of five NCAA Tournament appearances, including a spot in the 2001 Sweet Sixteen with the Flyers.
Prior to his coaching career, Sheen played professional soccer with the A-League’s Atlanta Ruckus during the outdoor season, while he spent indoor campaigns with the Atlanta Attack of the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL).
Sheen, who has a USSF B coaching license, earned a bachelor’s degree in general studies with an emphasis in sport management from Dayton in 2003.
He is married to the former Gena Draney and the couple has seven children: Meghan, Hannah, Catherine, Chelsee, Brandon, Dakota and Sierra.
