UCLA women’s soccer head coach Amanda Cromwell has promoted Sam Greene from volunteer coach to assistant coach.
Sam Greene just completed her fifth season on staff with UCLA and first year as a volunteer coach. She was previously the Bruins’ Director of Soccer Operations from 2013-16. Greene has a U.S. Soccer Federation C License and was the head coach of the LA Galaxy South Bay 2000 Elite age group from 2015-17.
A four-year letter winner at Northwestern, Greene was a two-time Academic All-Big Ten soccer player and Big Ten Distinguished Scholar during her senior year. She finished her career ranked fourth on Northwestern’s career (16) and single-season (eight) assists lists and fifth on the career games played list (78). She graduated from Northwestern in 2011 with a degree in Learning and Organizational Change.
“We are excited to announce Sam’s promotion to assistant coach,” said Cromwell. “She joined our staff when I arrived at UCLA and has worked tirelessly in her roles as director of soccer operations and then as a volunteer assistant coach. Sam has a great coaching mind, is an excellent recruiter and exhibits leadership skills beyond her years. I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Julie Foudy for recommending Sam five years ago. Thanks, Fouds!”
Greene replaces Joshua Walters, Sr., who is now the head coach at James Madison University. She joins the full-time coaching staff of Cromwell and assistant coach Jenny Bindon.
