Head Coach Greg Wilson enters his third year as the Philadelphia University men’s soccer coach this fall. A former standout as a player with the Rams in the early 1990’s, Wilson became the tenth coach in the program’s storied history.

A native of Downingtown, Pa., Wilson led the Rams this past fall in his second season at the helm. He joined the program after serving on staff at the University of Pennsylvania in 2002 where he helped the Quakers to the NCAA Division I Tournament. Prior to his stint at Penn, Wilson compiled an impressive 100-15-6 record in five years at Downingtown High School, including winning the PIAA State Championship in 1998 and 1999 while his teams finished in the Top 20 in the final NSCAA National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) High School rankings. For his efforts, he was named the Southeastern Pennsylvania Soccer Coaches Association and Daily Local News Coach of the Year in 1998 and 2001, as well as being named the 1998 Philadelphia Inquirer Coach of the Year.

As a player, Wilson played for a USYSA (Pa.) team that won numerous state championships as well as a Region I title. He was also an Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA) Olympic Development Program and Regional player. In 1989, Greg was named NSCAA High School All-American as a member of the state champion Downingtown High team. At then-Philadelphia Textile, Wilson was a four-year starter for the Rams, earning Philadelphia Soccer Seven All-Star honors as a senior and he remains in the top 10 in school history with 20 career assists. After graduating with a degree in marketing in 1994, Wilson played professionally for three years for the Philadelphia Freedom in the USISL before embarking on his coaching career. Greg is currently pursuing a Masters in Business Administration from Philadelphia University as well as his Masters in Coaching from the United States Sports Academy in Georgia.

The former Director of EPYSA, Wilson is currently a member of the Eastern Pennsylvania Olympic Development Program (ODP) coaching staff, where he helped lead the 1987 boys to the 2004 USYSA Region I and National Championships. Wilson is currently the Head Coach of the U17 boys ODP team for the 2005 season. Greg also serves as a coaching instructor for the NSCAA and the United States Soccer Federation State License Courses. In addition, Wilson’s professional experience also includes the selection of an U-23 amateur team to participate in the Region I Festival.

At the club level, Wilson led FC DELCO to a 1998 USYSA Regional I Championship, as well as earning USYSA State Cup Championships in 1996, 1998 and 2000. Wilson holds a United States Soccer Federation (USSF) "A" license and a NSCAA "Premier Diploma" and “Goalkeeping Diploma”.

Wilson currently serves on the Middle Atlantic Regional Advisory Committee for the NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer. He is the former President of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Soccer Coaches Association and is a member of the PSCA, NSCAA and USSF while also serving on the NSCAA High School All-America Selection Committee.

"Greg has had tremendous success at nearly every level, as both a coach and player, and we feel that will continue at Philadelphia University," said Philadelphia University Director of Athletics Tom Shirley. "He has shown that he is prepared to lead our program, both on and off the field. We are looking to continue the tradition that he was once a part of as a player and we are very excited about the prospects."

Wilson and wife, Andra, reside in Philadelphia, Pa.
