Greg Henson was officially announced as Concordia University head women's soccer coach on June 19, 2013. He completed his first season at the helm of the program with a record of 9-9-2 overall, including a 5-5 GPAC mark.
In his first season, Henson guided the Bulldogs to the GPAC semifinals for the second time in school history. Concordia advanced past Briar Cliff in the quarterfinals by winning a penalty-kick shootout.
Henson's Bulldogs showed plenty of growth behind first team all-conference pick Jordan Donohoue, as they won three of their final four regular season games prior to the GPAC playoffs. With Donohoue leading the way, Henson's squad set a school record for fewest goals allowed in a season (27), dating back to the inception of the program in 1996.
Henson came to Concordia after serving as head girls’ varsity soccer coach at Lutheran High School in St. Charles, Mo., where he earned 2011 and 2013 Archdiocesan Athletic Association (AAA) Coach of the Year honors.
In total, Henson brought 12 years of coaching soccer at the collegiate, high school and club levels prior to his arrival at Concordia. Henson already possessed an intricate understanding of the collegiate recruiting scene and is described as a tactician and superb instructor of the game.
As head women’s coach at Lutheran High School, Henson guided the Lady Cougars to the state tournament quarterfinals and the school’s second most victories in program history this past season during a 17-7 campaign that included Lutheran’s first-ever Class 1 District 7 championship and first AAA Conference championship. For its remarkable season, Henson was named Class 1 Central Region Coach of the Year. He has served as head coach at Lutheran in each of the last three seasons.
In addition, Henson worked as an assistant women’s coach at Lindenwood University in St. Charles for the past two seasons. In this role he contributed in virtually all aspects of the program, including training, game planning and recruiting. He also instructed Freshman Orientation, a two-credit course at Lindenwood.
Prior to his time at Lutheran and Lindenwood, Henson enjoyed a successful tenure as head men’s soccer coach at St. Louis Community College in 2009 and 2010. He directed the Highlanders to the 2010 Midwest Community College Athletic Conference title and was named the league’s Coach of the Year.
Henson holds a United States Soccer Federation National “B” License and Level I Goalkeeping Badge from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. He coached at the club level in the St. Louis area from 2001 – 2010 and has, in recent years, held positions as staff coach for the Missouri Olympic Development Program, assistant coach for the St. Louis Lions of the Premier Development League, assistant tournament director for the St. Louis College Showcase and tournament director for the annual Highlander Futsal Classic.
In addition to his main role as head women’s soccer coach, Henson serves as director of intramurals and teaches classes within the health and human performance department at Concordia.
Henson holds a bachelor of arts in human resource management from Webster University (1998) and a master of arts in sports management from Lindenwood (2013).
