  • Date Joined: 11th January 2021
I am a forward thinking UEFA and US Soccer A License Coach who has cultivated an impressive portfolio of achievements and experience over the last 20 years through roles in MLS, as well as, within the academy and US College System.

As a dedicated Coach I have diverse experience in lead and Academy coaching, I possess a proven track record in player development and I have contributed to the progression of players in the professional environment (domestic and overseas).

Furthermore I am proficient in coach development having developed my skills over the past decade through my role as a Coach Educator for the United States Soccer Federation (current A License Instructor) and United Soccer Coaches and I am committed to professional development to enhance my own coaching credentials.


“Being a personable coach at the highest level is a trait not many coaches in my experience have. But with Steffen, he has that quality and much more. He can speak to anyone in the locker room and lift their confidence. On the tactical side, he speaks to the finest detail about the game. For me, Steffen was a blessing coming into the RSL environment. A coach that cares about a player off the field as much as on the field.” - Justin Meram: Real Salt Lake and Iraq National Team

“Steffen is an amazing Coach, he has a great tactical knowledge of the game and explains things thoroughly and well. He pays attention to the details of the game which is what is needed at the highest levels of soccer. He connects with players on a personal level and as a coach and is always there for questions of any sort.” - Justen Glad: Real Salt Lake & US National Team

“Steffen is one of the most knowledgeable coaches I have ever had the privilege of working with. His understanding of the game from a tactical standpoint is unmatched. He is someone who truly cares about his players and will always be there for them on and off the pitch. He is one of my greatest mentors and I look forward to a future where we work together again.” - Ryan Malone: VfB Lubeck & former Springfield College player

“Organized, structured, analytical, detailed, caring, passioned, devoted, loyal, kind are characteristics which define Steffen. He is devoted and motivated to develop the game, himself and people around him. He truly cares for people and will go the extra mile to help, support and guide others. His knowledge of the game and teaching the game is of a high and professional standard.” - Antal Vergeer: Coach Educator & Technical Lead, USSF

"After playing at the highest level at both National and Club level, I can say Steffen has an incredible knowledge of the game. He clearly has a passion for the game and teaching others, which can be seen by how much he invests in learning and educating himself. Steffen is a loyal and trustworthy person, someone who commits to making you a better person, coach, and player." - Jermaine Jones: Former US Men’s international
