Felix named Asst Coach GW men's soccer
March 27, 2012
Jim Felix, a 20-year coaching veteran who holds a Premier License from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), has been named assistant coach for the George Washington men's soccer program under first-year head coach Craig Jones.
"I'm extremely happy to be adding Jim to the coaching staff," said Coach Jones, who was promoted to head coach in November after helping the Colonials earn a share of the 2011 Atlantic 10 regular-season title and reach the league championship match. "His vast experience and knowledge of the game will have an immediate impact on the program as we move forward and build on our recent successes."
Coach Felix joins the Colonials after spending the last five years as assistant coach of U.S. Youth Soccer's Region I Boys' U-15 Olympic Development Program (ODP) Team. He has also served stints as a Division I assistant coach at Cornell (1986-87), Harvard (1991-94), Boston University (1994), South Florida (2000-03), Georgetown (2004-06), and Columbia (2006-07), as well as a tenure as head coach at Stony Brook from 1987-91.
"I would like to thank the administration at the George Washington University and Coach Craig Jones for the opportunity to help continue the program's fine soccer tradition," said Coach Felix. "I look forward to working with Coach Jones in bringing GW to the next level in NCAA soccer. It is truly a privilege to be involved with such a prestigious institution with great student-athletes."
Along with his Premier License, Coach Felix also holds the National and Advanced National Diplomas from the NSCAA, as well as both 'A' and 'B' Licenses from the United States Soccer Federation (USSF).
Coach Felix helped the University of South Florida to a Sun Belt Conference title during his collegiate career from 1977-78. He earned both his bachelor's and master's degree in education from SUNY Cortland in 1981 and 1989, respectively.
