Greg Pittman Hotspurs Role: College Prep Phase Coach email@example.com Coaching Qualifications USSF Soccer – National D License Teacher at Penn Hills School District since 1998 Undergraduate: Slippery Rock University, BS Elementary Education, Special Education Certifications: Elementary, Special Education, Mathematics Graduate: Carnegie Mellon University, Public Policy and Management Relevant experience: Plum High School Boys Assistant Coach: 2019-present Gateway High School Boys Coach: 14 seasons Penn Hills High School Girls Coach: 3 seasons Former AFFC, Penns Forest, and Century United Coach Start in soccer: I remember playing soccer in 2nd grade for the first time for Monroeville Soccer Club. I played for a team called the Stars and my coach was Russ Maze. Inspiration to coach: My dad was the person that inspired me to coach. Growing up he always coached me in baseball and eventually in soccer as well. He seemed to have a natural talent to lead people. Favorite part of coaching soccer: My favorite thing about soccer is that it is always evolving. I have seen a stopper/sweeper be a prominent defensive shape and now it is seldom used. The flat back four changed the way we taught the game and the current trend is the 4-3-3 which is a lot of fun to teach. Favorite player/team: Favorite player right now is Lionel Messi. My favorite team right now is Liverpool. When not coaching soccer: My favorite hobby would be just spending time with family. My wife Valerie and I have 4 children (Ava 15, Benjamin 14, Lucas 14, Lydia 11).
