Emory University head women's soccer coach Sue Patberg has announced the appointment of Jake Dunn as assistant coach. Dunn assumes the post previously held by Rachel Moreland, who recently accepted an assistant coaching position at NCAA Division I member Colorado College.
Dunn comes to the Emory program after spending the 2016 season on the women's soccer staff at Rowan University (NJ). He helped the Profs to an overall record of 16-2-2, which included a New Jersey Athletic Conference title and a berth to the NCAA D-III Tournament. In addition to his duties at Rowan, Dunn served as Director of Junior Academy and Staff Coach with the South Jersey Elite Barons Soccer Club.
As a player, Dunn was a four-year member and three-year starter at midfield for Rowan, playing in a total of 56 games. During 2015, Dunn assisted the Rowan University Men's Soccer coaching staff in recruitment and participated as an instructor for various College ID Camps throughout our region.
"We are excited to have Jake join our Emory Eagles program," Patberg stated. "He arrives with great energy and has valuable recruiting and coaching experience. I'm confident that he will make significant contributions to our program."
Dunn graduated from Rowan University in May, 2016, as a double major with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. While attending Rowan, Jake served as a Leadership Mentor for incoming students.
The Emory women's soccer team will open the 2017 regular season on Sept. 1 when it plays at Georgia Gwinnett College.
