- PositionAssistant Coach
Paul Greig, 28, comes to Sky Blue FC with vast international coaching experience, including stops in his native Scotland, USA, England, Sweden, Spain and most recently in New Zealand, where he was the head coach of Northern Football this past season. In what was his first year at the position, Greig led Northern Football to the ASB Women’s League championship to become the youngest coach in New Zealand history to manage his club to a National League title (men’s or women’s team). By scoring 37 goals in just nine matches, Northern Football was also the highest scoring club in league history.
Possessing 14 years of coaching experience, Greig served in a number of roles at the youth academy level in New Jersey before returning home to Scotland in 2006, where he earned an appointment as the Grassroots Manager at Scottish Premier League powerhouse Heart of Midlothian. Additionally, he worked at East Fife Football Club while coaching at the youth development level for both organizations. Greig eventually moved to New Zealand in 2011 and joined the National Talent Centre as head coach, and he has remained with the group until making his most recent move to Sky Blue FC.
