Chad Miller on Laura Greb being added to the coaching staff. "As a coach you always love when your players are interested in staying in the sport after their playing career is over. It is a game that is really about relationships with people and getting the most out of them. So I am excited to have Laura here with us because she knows are system and culture within the program here at WCU. Laura will be a great asset to the team as a former player that understands what they are going through and can relate to them on that level. Todd and I look forward to working with Laura this fall and watching her grow as a coach."

I am not sure at what point I decided to go in this direction, but I have always loved playing and teaching soccer, so this seems like the right transition for me.
