Pete Pososki
Position: Assistant Coach
Alma Mater: Eastern Michigan
Graduating Year: 2003
Experience: 5 Years

Pete Pososki enters his first season as an assistant coach with the Penn men's soccer program in 2012 after a brief stint as a women's assistant at Virginia Tech predated by a six-year run as an assistant coach with Penn's women's soccer team.

In 2011 with the Hokies, Pososki shaped a backfield which helped the Hokies advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Championship and finish with a 14-8-1 overall record in the powerful ACC.

Pososki joined the Penn women’s soccer program prior to the 2005 season and completed six seasons with the Quakers. During Pososki's tenure, Penn won a pair of Ivy League championships, compiled an overall record of 56-32-14, and never had a losing season.

Most recently, Penn went 4-1-2 in Ivy League play in 2010 and earned its third conference championship (second outright). The Quakers went 9-7-2 overall and lost in the first round of the NCAA Championship to Big Ten champion Penn State, 1-0. At the end of the campaign, a Penn player was voted Ivy League Rookie of the Year (Kerry Scalora), while two others received first-team All-Ivy recognition (Kaitlin Campbell, Sarah Friedman).

Penn went 10-4-2 overall in 2009, the second time during Pososki's career that the Quakers accumulated a double-digit win total. Six players earned All-Ivy honors, headlined by Jessica Fuccello who tied the program record for goals in a season. In 2008, Penn went 8-6-3 overall, and while the Quakers were unable to defend their Ivy League title they did hand 2008 champion Harvard its only conference loss. At the end of the season, Penn had five women earn All-Ivy including two who were first-team honorees.

In 2007, Pososki helped oversee one of the biggest turnarounds in the nation, as the Quakers used a six-match winning streak as the catapult to a 6-1-0 Ivy League mark, good for their first outright conference title. Penn played in the NCAA College Cup first round, and finished the season ranked seventh in the deep Mid-Atlantic Regional poll.

During Pososki's first year with the Quakers, they finished the 2005 season with an 8-6-3 overall record including a 2-3-2 Ivy League mark. In 2006, Penn went 8-5-3 overall and held opponents to less than a goal a game; in Ivy play, the Quakers had a deceiving 1-4-2 record, shutting out Cornell and Yale and allowing just eight goals in seven matches.

Pososki has coached at both the collegiate and youth level. Prior to his arrival at Penn, he worked at Northern Illinois where he served as an assistant coach, recruiting coordinator and camp director. Pososki was also a volunteer assistant coach at Eastern Michigan from 2001-03. At the youth level, he was an evaluator and staff coach for the Michigan Olympic Development Program (ODP) and the head coach of the Novi Jaguars Soccer Club. He was also a member of the coaching staff at the Eastern Michigan Soccer Camp for five years.

Prior to beginning his coaching career, Pososki earned three varsity letters as a center and outside back at Eastern Michigan University before the sport’s elimination. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice from EMU in 2003.

As a prep senior in 1996, Pososki was a Michigan High School Athletic Association Class A (Large Schools) All-State midfielder and team captain at Churchill High School in Livonia. In addition, he was selected first-team all-division, first-team all-region, and second-team all-area during his final campaign. Pososki won three varsity soccer letters (1994-96) and played in the MHSAA All-Star Game and graduated from CHS in 1997.

Pososki holds a United States Soccer Federation (USSF) “B” license.
