Men's Soccer Coaching Staff
Jason Weides, head coach
Under Weides, Concordia has won 11 games in each of the last two seasons, coming up one win short of the school record of 12 wins set by the 2001 team that featured Weides as a player. In the midst of the 22-13-3 mark over the past two years, he guided the Bulldogs to 10-consecutive home wins, a streak that spanned from Aug. 27, 2011, to Sept. 26, 2012.
He also spent time at Kearney High School where he was an assistant coach from 2003-05, helping the team to its first state tournament appearance since 1998. During Weides' time at Kearney, he also was the head coach of the Kearney Sublime club soccer team. He then returned as an assistant at Concordia from 2005-08.
Weides is heavily involved with Athletes in Action and the Seward County Soccer Club. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Commercial Art from Concordia University in 2002 and resides in Lincoln.
