Rich Schreiner enters his fifth season with the Seattle University women's soccer team. From 2008-11, he served as an assistant coach, and in July 2012, he was promoted to Associate Head Coach.
In his first season in 2008, Schreiner assisted veteran head coach Julie Woodward in all aspects of the program. He helped coach the Redhawks to a solid 12-5-3 overall record in their first season at the NCAA Division I level. During their first season in DI, SU tallied 10 wins over fellow Division I opponents, six shutouts and an undefeated record at home, with four wins and a lone tie. Since then, he has helped Woodward lead the Redhawks to two more 12-win seasons, one of the biggest victories in school history over then-No.8 Portland, and has been a major contributor in the team's transition to Division I.
Prior to joining the SU women's soccer program, Schreiner spent two years as the assistant coach at Saint Bonaventure University.
At Saint Bonaventure, Schreiner was the women's soccer program's recruiting coordinator and assistant summer camp director. He directly involved in all aspects of practice, and assisted with fitness training and video breakdown and exchange. In 2007, he helped land the 14th-ranked recruiting class in the Northeast Region in a poll conducted by Soccer Buzz Magazine.
Before going to Saint Bonaventure, Schreiner spent two years as an assistant coach at Gustavus Adolphus College, assisting with on-the-field training, organization of practice and game plans, strength training, recruiting and travel planning. He started his coaching career as an assistant at Carroll College in 2003.
Schreiner has also been an instructor at various soccer camps throughout the country, including the Region I Olympic Development Program camp in Providence, R.I., and the Texas A&M women's soccer camp in College Station, Tex. Originally from Indianapolis, Ind., he earned his bachelor's degree in psychology in 2003 from DePauw University, where he was a four-year letterwinner on the men's soccer team.
