Coach Forward is an interview-style podcast hosted by Jason Mejeur (Coach J), accomplished Coach, Mentor, and Founder/CEO at MaxOne.
Today, I'm excited to be joined by Coach Jennifer Klein. Coach Klein recently concluded her fourth season as the head coach of the University of Michigan women's soccer program. Her fourth year at the helm of the Wolverines program proved to be one of the best in program history.
U-M won its first Big Ten Tournament title since 1999, and advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals before falling in overtime to eventual national champion Florida State. Michigan concluded the season with a record of 18-4-3, tying the school record for wins in a season, and went 12-1-1 at home to match the best home record in school history. U-M finished the season ranked No. 7 in the United Soccer Coaches poll.
In addition to her work at the collegiate level, Klein is also an assistant coach with the U.S. Soccer U19 women's national team. Klein also worked for four years as a coach with U.S. Soccer's LA Market Training Center, part of a national platform designed to improve player identification, player development, and coach development for the national team.
Klein boasts experience with the youth soccer ranks, having coached club teams and regional Olympic Development Program teams during her tenures at UNLV and Arizona. She received her National "A" License in the summer of 2011.
