Women's Soccer Names Assistant Coaches

Jan. 16, 2001

LOS ANGELES -- Neil Sedgwick and Andrea Warner have been named assistant coaches for the USC women's soccer program, USC head coach Jim Millinder announced today.

Sedgwick was the head coach at the University of North Dakota the past two seasons, where he registered a 19-15 overall record. The Fighting Sioux went 12-6 last season and 7-9 in 1999, the first year of the program.

In addition to coaching at North Dakota, Sedgwick has been a staff coach with the Canadian National Women's Team since 1996. He is a 1995 graduate of Dalhousie University, with bachelor's degrees in education and physical education. He received his master's degree from the University of Victoria in British Columbia last year.

Warner recently completed her four-year playing career with the Women of Troy. She played in all 84 games from 1997-2000, recording 11 goals and 12 assists as a midfielder.

Warner is a graduate from Dana Hills High School in Dana Point, Calif.

'Neil brings in a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge, not only with college players but also at the international level,' said Millinder. 'Andrea is a great addition. I always thought she had a great understanding of the game and will be a great help to our program.'

Sedgwick replaces Kit Vela, who left in December to take the head coaching position at New Mexico. Warner will serve as an undergraduate assistant coach until she graduates from USC this May, at which point she will be upgraded to a full-time position.
