Feb. 7, 2007
USC women's soccer head coach Ali Khosroshahin has named Harold Warren his associate head coach for the upcoming season. Khosroshahin and Warren together enter their first season at the helm of the USC women's soccer program, bringing with them considerable coaching experience as well as a long-standing friendship. Warren joins the USC staff after serving as an assistant coach at Arizona for four seasons.
'I'm very excited to have Harold working here at USC,' Khosroshahin said. 'He brings a great deal of knowledge about the conference and recruiting nationally, and he's an excellent teacher of the game. Harold and I have been kicking each other since we were 14 years old and I'm looking forward to working together with him.'
Warren and Khosroshahin were teammates at Cal State Fullerton after spending several years playing for rival club teams in Southern California. Now reunited at Troy, the pair look to lead the Trojans to increased success in the coming seasons.
'I'm happy to be here,' Warren said. 'I'm looking forward to working at the best institution the country, with group of great ladies and on a great coaching staff. I'm excited to be home.'
While at Arizona, Warren helped guide the Wildcats to an NCAA Third Round appearance in 2005 under head coach Dan Tobias. In his four seasons at Arizona, the Wildcats posted a 40-35-7 overall record and went 13-19-4 in Pac-10 play.
Before arriving at Arizona, Warren served one year as an assistant at UC Irvine in 2002, where he was also responsible for directing the UC Irvine Soccer Academy. From 2001-03, Warren was the assistant coach for the California Olympic Development Program's 86-87 age group, and was an ODP scout for Southern California male and female talent.
Warren spent 17 years coaching at the club level for boys and girls teams ranging from 10-19. He won league championships with Riverside Soccer Club and Long Beach Sidekicks, and helped the West Coast Stingers to a Surf Cup semifinal. From 1991-92, he was the head coach for the boys varsity team at Savanna High School in Anaheim.
He has remained involved in club and ODP coaching, heading up the '89 Arizona ODP and the U-15 Arizona Rush Nike Team while in Tucson. He also is a U.S. Soccer Federation licensed coach.
As a player, Warren was a defender and a forward at Riverside Community College before transferring to Cal State Fullerton in 1989. He then transferred to Cal Poly Pomona, where he graduated with a bachelor of science in communications in 2002.
