Jan. 28, 2011

CLEMSON, SC – Clemson women’s soccer head coach Eddie Radwanski announced the hiring of Jeff Robbins as an assistant coach on Friday. Robbins comes to Clemson from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where he spent the past four seasons on Radwanski’s staff.

“I am excited to have Jeff join us here at Clemson. He brings a tremendous work ethic, knowledge and passion to the program. He was instrumental in our team’s success the last several years at UNCG,” said Radwanski. “Jeff is a gifted recruiter with an outstanding eye for talent and a wonderful teacher of the game. We are fortunate to have him with us at Clemson.”

Robbins was the first assistant at UNC Greensboro from 2008-2010 and was a volunteer assistant in 2007, during which time the Spartans won four consecutive Southern Conference regular season titles, advanced to the NCAA Tournament two times and achieved a national ranking as high as 10th (in the 2010 final regular season poll). During his time with the Spartan program, Robbins maintained many responsibilities, including the organization of team travel, office management, monitoring academic progress, recruiting and player evaluation, scouting, team training, coaching and game planning.

Prior to his time at UNC Greensboro, Robbins spent eight years as the Executive Director & Director of Coaching for the Women’s Spokane Shadow Youth Soccer Club in Spokane, WA. During this time from 2000-2007, he was responsible for the oversight of the entire club structure.

From 1997-2006, Robbins was General Manager of the United Soccer League’s Spokane Shadow, after playing and serving as Director of Operations for the team in 1995 and 1996. He was inducted in the USL’s Hall of Fame in 2004 and earned the league’s Executive-of-the-Year Award in 2000.

Robbins was a four-year starter at NAIA schools Westmont College (Santa Barbara, CA) and Whitworth University (Spokane, WA) and was a member of two NAIA Conference Championship teams. He graduated from Whitworth University in 1995 with a bachelor of arts degree in political science.

Robbins holds advanced coaching licenses from USSF and NSCAA, and also has earned a USSF National Youth License and an NSCAA goalkeeping license.

“I am honored by this opportunity to join the Clemson family with all of its rich traditions and community spirit,” said Robbins. “I look forward to the challenges the ACC presents, and would like to express my appreciation to Dr. Terry Don Phillips, Kyle Young and Eddie Radwanski for their support.”
