The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg announced the hiring of Robert Spain as the second men's soccer coach in the 16-year history of the program.

Spain was an assistant coach at Moravian College n 2013. He also worked in the front office for Major League Soccer's LA Galaxy during the 2011 and 2012 MLS Cup championship seasons. He also spent the 2010 season as an assistant coach and goalkeeper coach with both the men's and women's programs at Waldorf College.

“We are extremely excited to add Robert to our coaching staff,” Athletic director Tony Berich said of Spain. “His soccer pedigree is excellent and matched only by his passion for the sport.”

Spain takes over for program founder Ted Wawrzyniak, who resigned from the position after 16 years as the soccer coach.
