Former Wheaton men’s soccer assistant coach and three-time All-American James Greenslit ’06 has been hired as the head coach of the men’s soccer program at Roger Williams University in Bristol, R.I.

“We are excited for James as he takes over the program at Roger Williams,” said Wheaton men’s soccer head coach Matt Cushing. “James is one of the great young coaches in our profession who is prepared to sit in the head coaching chair. I can’t wait to see his teams in action.”

Greenslit takes over the Roger Williams men’s soccer program after spending the past three seasons, and five seasons total, at Wheaton. In 2014, Greenslit helped the Lyons to a 17–4–2 overall record and the team’s second straight appearance in the NCAA tournament.

In Greenslit’s five seasons as an assistant coach with Wheaton, the Lyons compiled a 72–27–10 record for a .706 winning percentage. The Lyons captured one New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) regular season championship, one conference tournament championship, made two appearances in the NCAA tournament, and qualified for the NEWMAC playoffs in all five years.
