John Trice was hired as the men’s soccer coach at Greensboro College in December 2010. Trice arrived at GC after spending three seasons as an assistant men’s soccer coach at High Point University.
During his first year with The Pride, Trice guided the team to the edge of a .500 season for the first time in three years with an overall finish of 4-7-5.
Trice hopes to restore Greensboro College's impressive track
record in men's soccer. The Pride has been to two NCAA Division III
Championship games (1989, 98) and has reached 14 NCAA Tournaments.
GC produced .500 or better seasons from 1986 to 2008.
Working under Head Coach Dustin Fonder, Trice helped revitalize the HPU men's soccer program. The Panthers won a program-record 16 games and a Big South regular season championship this year. The 2010 Panther team also excelled in the classroom as it posted a grade point average above 3.0 and earned NSCAA Academic Team honors.
Trice served as the recruiting coordinator for HPU men’s soccer and assisted with practice planning, academic advising and scheduling. He was largely responsible for the Panthers’ highly-rated 2009 recruiting class.
Trice came to HPU after serving as assistant coach at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. While there, Trice assisted in leading the men’s soccer team to an 8-6-4 overall record, going undefeated in the Patriot League (4-0-3). The Crusaders earned the Patriot League regular-season championship.
The Chattanooga, Tennessee, native is a 2004 graduate of James Madison University where he was a four-year letter-winner, two-year starter and served as captain for the Dukes. Trice was a member of the 2000 and 2001 NCAA tournament teams as well as the 2001 Colonial Athletic Association All-Tournament team. He was a three-time Verizon Scholar-Athlete and heavily involved in the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
Trice also has served as the director of coaching for the Piedmont Triad Futbol Club for the past two years and was previously on the North Carolina ODP Staff.
