In two years working as an assistant coach with the Cincinnati Lady Bearcats, Matt Cosinuke enters the 2016- 2017 season looking to build upon the success his group has enjoyed and once again anchor a stingy defense that helped the Bearcats to the 2015 American Athletic Conference title.
Cosinuke spent the 2012 and 2013 seasons as a volunteer assistant with the Bearcats’ men’s program where he worked mainly with the goalkeepers and aided UC in qualifying for the conference tournament each year. In 2013, he had a keeper named National Goalkeeper of the Week once and American Athletic Conference Goalkeeper of the Week once. Off the field, he was heavily active in video analysis and organizing team camps and clinics.
Cosinuke came to UC after two seasons at Dartmouth, where he helped the Big Green to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances and trip to the Sweet 16 in 2010. He mentored 2011 all-Ivy League selection Noah Cohen, who posted six shutouts in leading DC to the Ivy League Championship.
During his time in Cincinnati, he has also coached the U13, U16 and U18 Girls at the Kings Hammer Academy. Cosinuke guided the U16 Girls to the 2012 President’s Cup Championship and Regional Championship.
Cosinuke holds the Advanced National Goalkeeping License from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and several licenses from the US Soccer Federation. He is a native of Lebanon, N.H.
