CCU women’s soccer adds Gnehm as assistant coach

Coastal Carolina women’s soccer head coach Paul Hogan added Chris Gnehm, a former assistant coach at Colorado, to his coaching staff on Monday.

“I am very excited to have Chris join my staff here at Coastal Carolina,” Hogan said. “I have known Chris for a long time and his hard work, passion for the game, and enthusiasm will rub off on the players. He brings a great deal of experience to my staff and he will help us make the strides we want to make in year two at Coastal. ”

Gnehm comes to Coastal after spending the 2011 campaign as the top assistant at Pac-12 member Colorado.  Prior to his time with the Buffaloes, Gnehm spent nine successful seasons as an assistant women’s soccer coach at Florida Atlantic, a member of the Sun Belt Conference. He was the Owls top assistant the last three seasons and served as the goalkeeper coach from 2002-07.

“I am eager to get started with my duties here at Coastal Carolina,” said Gnehm.  “I welcome the challenge of helping Paul build the program into a team that will contend for conference championships and NCAA tournament appearances.

“I am blessed to have the opportunity to work for such a close friend and someone I respect so much on and off the field. I feel like my last season with the University of Colorado and experiences in the Pac-12 will be an asset to me and the program.  I will bring a tireless work rate and passion for the job and the game and will expect and demand the same of our players. I am excited to be working at a great University with an amazing location, being back at the beach is a good thing.”

Gnehm, who has a background in goalkeeping, played a key role in directing an excellent FAU defense. In 2006, the Owls led all NCAA Division I teams in shutout percentage (.762), holding opponents scoreless in 16 of 21 matches. A year later, FAU’s second year in the Sun Belt, the team posted nine shutouts and allowed just 15 goals.

His collegiate coaching career started at his alma mater, Averett (Va.) University, where he was an assistant coach from 1996-98. He then became the assistant coach for the men’s soccer program at Monmouth (N.J.) University from 1998-99 before heading to Ferrum (Va.) College to be the head men’s soccer coach as well as a women’s tennis coach from 1999-2001. In addition to his coaching credentials, he led the Soccer Plus Goalkeeping School (Wethersfield, Conn.) during the summer of 1995. He is a member of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

Gnehm earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education in 1997 from Averett, where he was a four-year starter at goalkeeper and team captain from 1993-96. He still holds Averett’s school record for most saves in a single season and career.
