May 5, 2009

Clemson, SC – Clemson women’s soccer head coach Hershey Strosberg announced Tuesday the hiring of Eric Golz to his coaching staff. Golz brings a wealth of collegiate experience, having been involved with all aspects of a Division I program over the past six years. Most recently, he was an assistant at the University of Iowa for the last three years. He is also very involved with the Olympic Development Program in Region II.

“Eric’s personality, enthusiasm and passion for the game will be a tremendous asset to our program,” said Strosberg. “His experience and knowledge will help in our efforts to take Clemson soccer to the next level. I have a lot of respect for him as a person and coach and I believe he will be a great complement to the rest of our staff.”

Golz has earned his United States Soccer Federation (USSF) “A” License. He also has a Level 1 goalkeeping license from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Golz graduated from Grove City College in Pennsylvania in 2002 with a degree in finance and was an all-conference goalkeeper.

“I am incredibly honored and excited that I have been offered the opportunity to become a part of the Clemson family,” said Golz. “I am very grateful for this opportunity, and I want to offer a sincere thank you to all of those on the hiring committee as well as Kyle Young and Hershey. Clemson is one of the premiere public academic institutions in the country, the soccer program has a very successful history with an even brighter future, and it is located in an ideal college town! Hershey is a charismatic leader who has a very clear vision for the program, and I am looking forward to working with he and Kristen (Weiss) to make that vision a reality.”
