The dean of coaches at Seattle University, Julie Woodward has earned the respect of her peers with her style of coaching, which has led to 14 winning seasons. She enters her 16th season at the helm of the Redhawk women's soccer program in 2012. With such an accomplished coaching resume, Woodward continued to establish herself as the winningest coach in SU women's soccer history with a 206-79-26 overall record and a .662 winning percentage.
Seattle University's former two-time NAIA All- American soccer player came home to her alma mater as the head coach of the Redhawks women's soccer program over a decade ago. A native of Seattle, Woodward took over the program after serving three years as an assistant women's soccer coach at the University of Montana.
While the women's soccer program at Seattle University has always been a successful one, Woodward has clearly taken it to a new level in her time as the leader of the Redhawks. Not only has she compiled the program's all-time best coaching record, she has guided the Redhawks to the NAIA regional championship match in five straight seasons before making the move up to the NCAA Division II level.
Associate Women's Head Soccer Coach
5 Seasons - DePauw ‘03
Rich Schreiner enters his fifth season with the Seattle University women's soccer team. From 2008-11, he served as an assistant coach, and in July 2012, he was promoted to Associate Head Coach.
In his first season in 2008, Schreiner assisted veteran head coach Julie Woodward in all aspects of the program. He helped coach the Redhawks to a solid 12-5-3 overall record in their first season at the NCAA Division I level. During their first season in DI, SU tallied 10 wins over fellow Division I opponents, six shutouts and an undefeated record at home, with four wins and a lone tie. Since then, he has helped Woodward lead the Redhawks to two more 12-win seasons, one of the biggest victories in school history over then-No.8 Portland, and has been a major contributor in the team's transition to Division I.
Prior to joining the SU women's soccer program, Schreiner spent two years as the assistant coach at Saint Bonaventure University.

She began her collegiate coaching career at her alma mater George Mason University, in Fairfax, Va. in 2006. As an assistant coach she focused primarily on all aspects of the team's recruiting program.
