Sporting San Diego will have the privledge of having Jason Entlich work with our teams and coaches for three days in March. Coach Entlich brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from the soccer world. Entering his 15th season at Columbus State in the fall of 2018, Entlich is the winningest coach in PBC history posting a 241-55-22 mark since 2004. In his tenure, the Lady Cougars have captured at least a share of the PBC regular season championship 11 times and have won the PBC Tournament seven times. In addition, CSU has appeared in the PBC Tournament finals 11 times in the past 13 seasons.
Columbus State is also no stranger to the NCAA Tournament under Entlich having made 12 straight appearances. Since 2007, the Lady Cougars have advanced to at least the second round of the NCAA Tournament in every year including making national quarterfinal appearances in 2007, 2008, 2015 and 2016. In 2015, the Lady Cougars made their deepest NCAA Tournament run, advancing to the national championship game and followed it up with an appearance in the national semifinals in 2016.
Prior to coming to Columbus State University, Entlich served as the head coach of the Carolina Courage of the Women’s United Soccer Association. Among the players he coached were 2004 FIFA World Soccer Player of the Year Birgit Prinz and World Cup players Kristen Luckenbill, Tiffany Roberts, Carla Overbeck and Danielle Fotopoulos. Before the Courage, Entlich was a U.S. Women’s National Team staff coach where he coordinated player development, indentified and recruited players for the U.S Youth National Teams and instructed B and C license courses for coaches.
We look forward to the visit and cannot wait to soak up all the information that we can.
